About AUGE EDITOR
We are a publishing house based in Berlin. We print and distribute books, artbooks, comicbooks, picture books, photos, poetry, text, etc.
For us the big deal is the durability, resistance, permanence of our material. In a world of volatile information, where objects are produced to be disposable. Paper and disposable books are printed by tons, no image seems to stay more than five seconds in the cache of your cell phone. To reinforce book culture and it's collecting is to stand in front of this rotation of mediatic information. That is why we use the best materials to ensure the durability of our art. Each step we take is a decision made regarding the quality of the final result.
You will not find our books falling apart after a few days of purchase.
Every book is the result of an eternal search for human soul, bonding ancestral wisdom, hardworking, perspective, vision, fantasy, imaginary, testimony, witness, the culmination of a cultural storytelling.
History. Memory. Identity.
We believe that ibero.american art explores the cultural political social & artistic reality of our time, under the influence of specific, marginal and diverse socio-economic structures and we want to make books with it.
In a world where a global economy is the excuse to expand markets along with social injustice, violation of human rights and mystification of culture & coolness, independent projects reflect on what has no place in large scale industry-markets, and generates other kinds of human relationships.
We intend to make latin/iberoamerican art scene visible, reinforce the voice and reset prejudices about the so called "third world countries", and incarnate our labour force in an attempt to live fairly and in autonomy.
