About gutleut verlag:
the gutleut verlag was founded 2002 by the artist Michael Wagener in Frankfurt/Main being a main part of the activities of the exhibition space gutleut 15. From the beginning on the idea of this project was to develop interdisciplinary book concepts in the fields of art, science and literature and not simply producing art catalogues.
The relation of image and text turned out to be the main topic of nearly all publications. In doing so the programme of the publishing house is divided in several book series each of them having a special focus on form and content.
So far more than 50 books have been published.
