The Hauser & Wirth Book & Printed Matter Lab is a project devoted to exploring the important place that books and prints occupy in the practice of artists. Building upon Hauser & Wirth’s curatorial and publishing activities, the Book Lab presents thematic installations and displays, as well as talks and panels, that invite reflection, creative thinking, and further conversation about the world of printed matter and its connection to artists’ ideas and objectives.


Summer Reading Room

We invite you to enjoy and engage with a comprehensive selection of publications on the artists featured in our summer exhibitions – Takesada Matsutani, Paul McCarthy, and Monika Sosnowska.
