ist publishing is an independent Ukrainian small press that speсializes in books on contemporary culture and art, established by a circle of like-minded people: Kateryna Nosko, Anastasia Leonova, and Borys Filonenko in 2017. We direct our attention to publishing research on contemporary art and culture in Ukrainian with its further translation into foreign languages.
Another aspect of our work is dedicated to the translation of fundamental texts on art theory and history, philosophy of art, sociology of culture by the leading foreign researchers into Ukrainian. Our editing team holds a particular interest in publishing art books and phonebooks. At first glance our books could seem niche and cover narrow topics, however, we are convinced that all of them are about our everyday life and an opportunity to make it more intense and fulfilling.
