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, 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 created in 2017 the Passages online series, available on Heidelberg University’s open access publication platform arthistoricum.net – ART-Books. Also since 2017, titles from the series Passages and Passerelles are successively made available in multisupport (HTML, ePub and PDF) on the platform OpenEdition Books. Other online editorial content is offered by Digital DFK. Alongside print editions, the DFK Paris now produces digital editions as well and follows an open access policy.
The institute’s publication program is rounded out by numerous co-editions developed with partner institutions.
