The series art presents monographs of contemporary artists whose aesthetic practises spark societal discourses. One focus is on perspectives from the Global South.
In the series discourse, our authors engender musings about the future(s) and reflect on recent debates within the fields of aesthetics, society, the arts and politics.
Critical engagements with not only museum collections, but also with art and academic archives are presented through the series collections.
Pleasure celebrates the expressions of freedom, love, sex and desire in all imaginable forms.
The series scholar publishes academic texts, such as master’s and doctoral theses, as well as re-editions of older texts, primarily by authors from the Global South.
The series Iwalewahaus is dedicated to publishing texts that are developed during projects at the Iwalewahaus, University of Bayreuth.
zines by iwalewabooks
The zines by iwalewabooks bring positions from fine arts, photography, literature, journalism and other fields into dialogue. Each issue deals with a theme that is an aesthetically and politically urgent matter and offers constellations or possible points of connection of arts and academia, politics and aesthetics, activism and philosophy. Each issue is produced by an artistic director or a collective that curates the contributions. iwalewabooks zines wish to push and pull you - to think, react, write into the zine, to get into discussion.
In addition, we publish out-of-band, a series of smaller books, such as manifestos and artist’s books, in collectable, limited editions.
