K. Verlag

K. Verlag was co-founded as an independent publishing imprint and curatorial-editorial platform by curator/editor Anna-Sophie Springer and artist Charles Stankievech in 2011. Ever since, K. operates as a machine to research the “book-as-exhibition.” With an office in Berlin, K.’s publishing and curating produces new geographical and physical encounters, develops intercultural approaches to historical archives, and advances hybrid methodologies to explore contemporary issues. Previous projects by K. have critically engaged themes of colonialism and ethnography, geopolitics and climate change, and visual culture and the museum space. We collaborate internationally with artists and institutions to produce unique publications, which explore the book-space beyond mere documentation (as in the traditional exhibition catalogue), creating instead adjacent, parallel, or extended curatorial spaces. In addition, K. approaches publishing as a platform, which also realizes public events including panel discussions, public lectures, and exhibitions.
