‘The process of making a book is in many ways comparable to creating an exhibition. In both, we try to provide artists with the instruments necessary to make concrete their ideas.’

—Iwan Wirth, Hauser & Wirth President

About Publishers

Artists’ voices, exceptional art, scholarship, design, and bookmaking are at the heart of Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ program. Books are critical gateways to new ways of thinking and seeing; they provide vital, lasting records of artists’ works and ideas and the discourse they inspire. This is why publishing has been a cornerstone of the gallery’s activity since its founding and why Hauser & Wirth Publishers has grown to become a leading imprint for unique, object-like books that encourage an understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art. With the special access granted by artists to their writings and archives, Hauser & Wirth Publishers often brings new and overlooked aspects of an artist’s creative practice into focus. Our backlist offers a robust program that comprises artists’ books, artists’ writings, biographies, monographs, surveys, exhibition catalogs, and collectors’ perspectives.

Hauser & Wirth’s publishing activity extends back to 1992, from where it steadily flourished through partnerships with reputable imprints such as Hatje Cantz, JRP|Ringier, Snoeck, Steidl, Thames & Hudson, and Yale University Press, before publishing independently under its own imprint. Based in Zurich and New York City, Hauser & Wirth Publishers commissions titles that we believe are keystone resources and references related to the artists represented by the gallery. Our titles are distributed worldwide via Distributed Art Publishers and Buchhandlung Walther König

Hauser & Wirth Bookshops

Titles from the Hauser & Wirth Publishers program can be found at each of Hauser & Wirth’s gallery locations. Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ newly opened headquarters in Zurich features a publisher’s bookshop that joins its counterparts in New York and London – shops that also serve as local hubs for communities and artists, where the gallery presents a range of public programming.

Hauser & Wirth Publishers Book Lab

The Hauser & Wirth Book Lab is an initiative devoted to exploring the important place that books and prints occupy in the practice of artists. Building upon Hauser & Wirth’s curatorial and publishing activities, the Book Lab presents thematic installations, displays, and programming that invite reflection, creative thinking, and further conversation about the world of printed matter and its connection to artists’ ideas and objectives.
