MAMCO

MAMCO's publishing activities are directly linked to the Museum's operations. Its main publication, an ongoing series of works devoted to various aspects of MAMCO's collection, provides a broad audience with insights into the Museum's holdings and the history of contemporary art. MAMCO also frequently publishes exhibition-specific literature offering more in-depth analyses. This includes books on specific topics as well as monographs prepared by MAMCO alone or in collaboration with various partners (such as public museums and independent publishers). A semiannual journal rounds out MAMCO's publications; it highlights the Museum's cultural programming, revisits select events and previews upcoming projects.
