During the late 1980s, Ursula and Manuela Hauser and Iwan Wirth are introduced to art publisher and bookstore owner Walther Konig. The gallery supports and publishes several art books such as 'Hotel Carlton Palace: Chambre 763' and 'Paul-Armand Gette. Nymphaeum'. These publications mark the beginning of an active role for the gallery in art publishing.
Titles from the Hauser & Wirth Publishers program can be found at each of Hauser & Wirth’s gallery locations. Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ newly opened headquarters in Zurich features a publisher’s bookshop that joins its counterparts in New York and London – shops that also serve as local hubs for communities and artists, where the gallery presents a range of public programming.
Our gallery shops offer a wide selection of Hauser & Wirth Publishers titles and a curated selection of objects designed by Hauser & Wirth artists, and products with a focus on provenance and source: including small makers, local craftspeople and community projects.
