ICC Publishing House

ICC Publishing House is a scholarly publishing house of the International Cultural Centre in Krakow, a national institution of culture with expertise in the culture and heritage of Central Europe.

ICC Publishing House publishes research papers, conference proceedings, and essays as well as albums presenting European art, particularly from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and European tangible heritage. Research papers dealing with the art and heritage of the eastern lands of the former Republic of Poland are an important part of the ICC’s publishing activity.

One of the most frequently discussed subject areas is the concept of cultural heritage and its critical, multi-perspective reflection. Among our authors are leading contemporary intellectual: historians, art and architecture historians, as well as professionals in areas of memory studies, heritage protection and diverse aspects of heritage management.

The ICC’s publishing activity is driven by a belief that deeper mutual understanding is necessary because only reliable knowledge can help overcome stereotypes and biases, and create a foundation for partnership and cooperation in our region.

Over the 30 years of its activity, the ICC has worked out an operating format that combines strictly scientific projects addressed to experts and decision-makers with those that usher the Polish reader to the fascinating world of history, art and culture of the 20th century and contemporary intellectual reflection on heritage science, with a special emphasis on Central Europe.
