Mark Pezinger Books e.V.
Grosse Neugasse 1/5
1040 Vienna–AT


Mark Pezinger Books is a non-profit association based in Vienna, whose mission is to publish artist’s books and make them visible. Our books are ranging from one-offs to higher editions and from sound-works to normal books. A main focus of our program is the examination of documentation and the creation of a new presence within our publications. Our collaborations include both, institutional and self-initiated projects and are based on a strong exchange between artist, designer and editor. Mark Pezinger was founded by Karsten Födinger and Thomas Geiger in 2009. Since 2015 it is run by Astrid Seme and Thomas Geiger.
