The publishing house specializes in artist books that are conceptualized as a part of an artwork or as the artwork itself, attempting to play with the format of the book and to reflect its medium. All of the books are produced in close collaborations with the artists themselves. Biannually, an editorial board meeting consisting of internal members of the publishing house and external advisers review all submitted books and project applications. The realisation of future endeavours is decided collectively.
Working in the long-standing tradition of alternative publishing practises, BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE focuses on collaborations with younger, not yet established artists or artists from outside of North America and Western Europe, i. e. from outside of an eurocentric discourse. monographs and artist's books. -->
