About Power Publications

Power Publications was established in 1986. Since then, it has grown into a leading and award-winning publisher of books on contemporary art and theory, cultural studies, media studies and film and animation.

We aim to make the latest ideas and theories about art and visual cultures available to national and international readers. We publish both new monographs and collected volumes, from groundbreaking publications on Asian and contemporary Aboriginal art, to fashion theory and rare English translations of major theoretical interventions.

Power Publications is committed to making available great writing on art at affordable prices to wide audiences.

Occasionally we consider book proposals from authors and editors. Submissions are reviewed by Power Institute Director Professor Mark Ledbury and Publications Officer Marni Williams.

Promising submissions are sent to our review board for initial acceptance, then to the editorial board for final approval. All manuscripts are subjected to peer review before publication.

Proposals should consider the book’s intended audience and Power Publications’ mission. Our previous titles demonstrate the type and tone of our publications. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact the Publications Officer to request a copy of the submission guidelines. Please note: the onsideration process can take some time, but we endeavor to keep you informed throughout.
