——————————————————————

Our art books emerged from our intercultural art installations. They are not conventional catalogs but sophisticated and well-thought-out art books with an aesthetic arrangement of contents (art pictures, art objects, poetry, sound, art history and living with art). Depending on the content of the book there are also our aesthetic topic discussions and thoughts or comments about your beautiful works.

Information about our books in the editing process

  • We ask for your understanding: The general situation required a lot of time for rethinking, revising, reflecting and planning. Our art book projects are nevertheless carried out on time. Please read more about “The way we work?” on our website http://www.enter-into-art.com, item ART BOOK!
  • Please scroll down for information about the deadline for sending your image files of a book project!

On-screen presentation of our art book “A Fine Art Journey” in Cologne

The following book projects are fully booked. Participation is only possible in exceptional cases. We will work on these books one after the other. Depending on the content and scope of the book, publication usually takes a year, after all images have been received. Of course we always strive for a faster processing! If you have questions, please refer to the email address of the respective editor!

In general, all of our books are presented as part of an on-screen presentation lasting several weeks at the Art Center Cologne-Kalk. Here, one image per artist will be shown free of charge. All participating artists will be informed about the presentation and are welcome to mention the art shows in their curriculum vitae. The screen with the international event is always positioned at the entrance to the cultural center. In addition to regular solo exhibitions by German artists, there is also a community college for adult education and a small theater in the Art Center. This announcement service for our books usually takes place, but cannot be guaranteed.

Once a year we publish one or two bonus videos, usually for the first 20 – 30 participants per project. These are collective videos with relaxing music that are created in the course of editing the books. If a video is available, we will inform the participating artists. This also concerns our free service of internet documentation in English and German. One picture per participant will also be presented on the Internet as soon as possible.
