HKU Press

HKU Press makes the results of practical research available to a wide public. We share innovative insights and contribute to discussions on important themes for artists and makers. You can read more about the HKU Press publications and order them on this page.

About HKU Press

HKU Press is part of HKU. It is an imprint (publishing house) of International Theatre and Film Books (ITFB). The publications are produced solely from research by professors, makers and other practical researchers at HKU. They are intended for students and lecturers, for our professional field and for other interested parties. As art research is often conducted internationally, we often publish in English as well as in Dutch.

Our Mission

The goal of HKU Press is to draw attention to the results of HKU research, in order to reinforce HKU’s education and research. HKU thereby aims to contribute to the development of practice-based research in the arts. HKU’s research focuses on creative processes and is relevant to society. We encourage collaboration between education and research, and share innovations and research results with the professional field.
