Our art books emerged from our intercultural art installations. They are not conventional catalogs but sophisticated and well-thought-out art books with an aesthetic arrangement of contents (art pictures, art objects, poetry, sound, art history and living with art). Depending on the content of the book there are also our aesthetic topic discussions and thoughts or comments about your beautiful works.

Buy our books?

Our art book projects are carried out on time! A first edition is published by the publisher PEECHO in the Netherlands (without ISBN – usually as hardcover and softcover) and a second edition about 2-3 months later by the German publisher Rediroma (with ISBN as softcover or hardcover). The Peecho prices are similar to the reduced author’s price with ISBN. (The author’s price is considerably lower than the price in bookstores!) We will keep you informed of both releases.

In general, all of our books are presented as part of an on-screen presentation lasting several weeks at the Art Center Cologne-Kalk. Here, one image per artist will be shown free of charge. All participating artists will be informed about the presentation and are welcome to mention the art shows in their curriculum vitae. The screen with the international event is always positioned at the entrance to the cultural center. In addition to regular solo exhibitions by German artists, there is also a community college for adult education and a small theater in the Art Center. This announcement service for our books usually takes place, but cannot be guaranteed. However for undefinited time the Art Center is closed due to Covid 19!

Once a year we publish one or two bonus videos, usually for the first 20 – 30 participants per project. These are collective videos with relaxing music that are created in the course of editing the books. If a video is available, we will inform the participating artists. This also concerns our free service of internet documentation in English and German. One picture per participant will also be presented on the Internet as soon as possible.

Jury awards for larger and small-scale artworks: Participation in the competitions is basically voluntary. (Please inform us if you do not want to participate in contests!) One image from each of the featured artist double pages and one image of the book series LOUNGE 2 will take part in the annual competition for large format images in summer. In addition, an international contest for small-format images (miniprint and mixed media) is being carried out as part of the “Art Retreat” book series.

Our awards will be made by international jurors! They are rewarded by German blog posts with high-quality texts about your work of art. Additionally there are the book design awards: selected images are featured on the book cover, back cover, title page, chapter pages, or other highlighted pages in the books. The total value of our rewards corresponds to an amount of several thousand euros.

There are different options for each book project. Please inform yourself in each case in the current rules!
