Well Gedacht Publishing is a Berlin and Vienna based collective founded by Ipek Burçak and Eren Ileri in 2019, as a spin-off of record label Well Gedacht. Recognizing DIY publishing as part of their artistic practice, Well Gedacht Publishing brings out artists' publications in collaboration with fellow artists living in Europe as part of diaspora communities. Their output varies from books and zines to epub, from sound storage to performative formats.

P.S: We usually commission work from our collaborators ourselves. But if you think you have something/an idea that would fit well within our concept, you can send us an e-mail. Please read and have a look at what we do beforehand.
