The German Center for Art History (DFK Paris) publishes works by its own researchers and accepts essays and monographies by art historians from around the world. Our editorial line, at first oriented toward annual themes and long-term projects, has since opened up to other methodological and historiographical perspectives. It now incorporates studies on subjects as varied as artistic exchanges, art collections and collectors, classical architecture, art theory, and the political significance of images.
In addition to its Passages/Passagen, Passerelles, and Monographies series, published by Éditions de la Maison des sciences de l'homme (MSH) in France and by the Deutscher Kunstverlag (DKV) in Germany, the DFK Paris recently created the Passages online series, available on Heidelberg University’s open access publication platform arthistoricum.net – ART-Books. The institute’s publication program is rounded out by numerous co-editions developed with partner institutions.
Alongside print editions, the DFK Paris now produces digital editions as well and follows an open access policy.
