The Germany, Cologne, based DuMont publisher is one of the oldest publishers for books and magazines in Europe; its origins go back to the beginning of the 19th century. DuMont publishes daily newspapers and magazines, literature and non-fiction books; its art department is regarded as one of the best in Europe since most of the art books and catalogues are created and produced in close collaboration and ongoing consultations with the artists. The former curator of the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, Uta Grosenick is in charge of the art department. Since the last year she has been developing limited editions of artworks together with the artists: woodcuts, sculpture, prints and originals offered at affordable prices for young collectors. In addition to numerous 'Western' artists such as Anselm Reyhle or Tobias Rehberger (recipient of the Golden Lion award of the Biennale di Venezia 2009), DuMont Editionen for the first time includes a Chinese artist, Yang Shaobin.
