ICI Berlin Press is an independent, non-profit publisher exploring the possibilities of a hybrid publishing model: OpenAccess electronic books with a print-on-demand option and the international distribution this model affords. Not bound by the protocols of conventional publishing nor the disciplinary boundaries of academic scholarship, it promotes radical lines of questioning, diverse voices, novel approaches.

Founded in 2019, the Press draws inspiration from but does not limit itself to the ongoing research projects of the ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry.

Cultural Inquiry

ICI Berlin Press continues the series ‘Cultural Inquiry’, edited by Manuele Gragnolati and Christoph F. E. Holzhey, begun with Viennese publisher Turia + Kant in 2010 and listing seventeen titles to date (print editions of the first fourteen volumes are still available through Turia + Kant).

The series ‘Cultural Inquiry’ is dedicated to exploring how diverse cultures can be brought into fruitful rather than pernicious confrontation.
