OAZA BOOKS is an independent publisher on art, artistic research, design, poetry and illustration. Books are designed, edited and published by Art and Design Collective Oaza from Zagreb.
So far we have established several editions. oBOOK / Editions in the field of art, design and research are edited and curated by members of the OAZA Collective. The edition arose from the need to articulate critical views derived from the self-initiated works of OAZA members. aBOOK / Artists’ Books Edition focuses on collaboration with exciting artists from around the globe delivering artists’ books that fuse contemporary art practice, graphic design and publishing. Oaza&Sons / Illustrated Edition brings out a series of intelligent and inspiring illustrated books for children and adults. The series emerged from the belief in transformative power of children’s literature — in its simultaneous act as art, as pedagogy, as ethics and as a political practice. Oaza&Friends / Co-production and co-publishing projects in which members of the OAZA Collective participate in different roles.
OAZA was founded in 2013 by six designers — Nina Bačun, Ivana Borovnjak, Roberta Bratović, Tina Ivezić, Maja Kolar and Maša Poljanec. Since then, OAZA had been continuously involved in art and design research-based projects in the domain of the independent cultural sector, self-initiated design projects (curatorial practices, art and design research, social design, strategic and conceptual design, publishing, design education).
