Founded in collaboration with Datz Museum of Art in 2010 in Seoul, South Korea, Datz Press is a small independent publisher comprising photographers, designers, and book artists, whose purpose is to preserve artists’ works through publication. Datz’s books are held in the collections of the Stanford Libraries, Amon Carter Museum, the library at the International Center for Photography, and now, The New York Public Library.

On the occasion of the Library’s acquisition of Datz’ entire catalog, several artists whose work has been published speak to the unique nature of this enterprise, and the importance of the place it holds in the contemporary art world of Korea, and the international art community at large.
