Verlag für moderne Kunst

Our Mission

The Verlag für moderne Kunst is one of the top addresses for the leading topics, manifestations, and protagonists in contemporary art. In close collaboration with artists, galleries, and museums we accompany the book publishing process from careful planning to sophisticated design and high-quality production.

Our Vision

Founded in 1974 in Nürnberg, we now publish our program from our new location in Vienna since 2014. Our many award-winning publications clearly reflect more than 40 years of experience in art book production. Books by Verlag für moderne Kunst articulate topical discourses, they respond to controversial societal and artistic issues and phenomena of today. Parallel to the presentation of established positions, our publishing house also works with artists at the beginning of their career. Furthermore, we offer select and limited art editions in cooperation with our partner Collectors Agenda.

Our Spectrum

The range of topics we are dedicated to is as diverse as contemporary art: Hence, our program also includes architecture, design, photography, theatre, film, literature, and all affiliations in between. Thinking beyond disciplinary borders is central to our work, so we maintain an international network of experts and correspondents. Moreover, with our worldwide distribution network we can guarantee that books by Verlag für moderne Kunst are available all around the globe.

We are #artbooklovers
