Published/Hosted by Parkett Verlag. ISSN: 0256-0917.

Parkett - now in its 20th year - is published in direct collaboration with important international artists, whose oeuvre is explored in several essays by leading writers and critics. Each artist also creates a special signed and numbered edition exclusive to Parkett, which may take any form, from unique works of art to prints and multiples. Parkett has published more than 70 volumes with some hundred and fifty monographs and artists' editions making it one of the most comprehensive libraries on contemporary art worldwide, and simultaneously a pocket museum or "Musée en Appartement". The Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris has called Parkett one of the best art publications and invited the publication to a special exhibition in Paris. Subsequently, exhibitions of Parkett's artists' editions have been held in Cologne (Ludwig Museum), Frankfurt (Portikus), Copenhagen (Louisiana Museum), Tokyo (Hillside Forum), Geneva (Centre d'Art Contemporain), London (Whitechapel Art Gallery), Zurich (Kunsthaus) among other places. A comprehensive catalog raisonné of all artists' editions has been published in spring 2001 on the occasion of Parkett's retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. "Parkett - 20 Years of Artists' Collaborations", the new book from the Kunsthaus Zurich exhibition features unpublished artists sketches, documents, interviews, photographs and statements on the history and the making of Parkett since 1984. The list of collaborating artists includes: Laurie Anderson, Richard Artschwager, Georg Baselitz, Matthew Barney, Louise Bourgeois, Francesco Clemente, Peter Fischli/David Weiss, Gilbert & George, Rebecca Horn, Ilya Kabakov, Jeff Koons, Brice Marden, Bruce Nauman, Meret Oppenheim, Raymond Pettibon, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, and many more. In addition to this central collaboration element, Parkett features various articles on contemporary art within a series of playful rubrics such as Cumulus, Insert, or Les Infos du Paradis. Parkett is published three times per year in English and German by its eponymous publishing house in Zurich with an additional editorial office in New York. With a circulation of over 11,000 copies the publication is read by some 30,000 readers in some 40 countries, one third of them in North America. Parkett is available by subscription and is on sale in more than 500 art book shops around the world. Editors are Bice Curiger (Editor-in-chief), Cay-Sophie Rabinowitz (associate editor USA) and Jacqueline Burckhardt (Editor). Publisher is Dieter von Graffenried.
