Archive Books is a publishing house committed to the development of a range of activities dedicated to contemporary cultural production founded in 2007 by Chiara Figone. Through its publications Archive Books explores and conveys art publications as a method to bring art practices into the public discussion. It aims to produce and distribute printed materials, which allows the creation and the maintenance of a dialogue between cultural research and social sphere. In 2008, Archive Journal was launched, bringing together scholarly and theoretical articles from the fields of art, architecture, and politics to create a cross-disciplinary discourse. Archive Books also organizes a series of cultural events in Berlin, at Archive Kabinett, editorial office of the publishing house and elsewhere.
