JRP|Editions

Created in 2004 in Zurich by Lionel Bovier, JRP|Editions (previously JRP|Ringier) is an international art publishing house based in Geneva. Neither a micro-structure nor an outreach of a media group, the company has organized the production according to defined typologies and series, while maintaining a flexible approach to artists' projects. This strategy has allowed a catalogue of titles aimed at the contemporary art audience, and structured around different editorial lines and time frames to develop, often in collaboration with institutions and renowned editors. Presenting to a specialized and general public a generation of artists who emerged in the 1990s, the 2000s, and the early 2010s, as well as introducing the newest positions in today's scene, JRP|Editions' catalogue also demonstrates an interest in remapping the 1980s, and in publishing significant texts and artists still overlooked today.

JRP|Editions co-publishes with Les presses du réel the Positions and Documents series, as well as various catalogues and monographs.
