Auditorium - Mimesis International
Con la pubblicazione del trimestrale di musica, musicisti e strumenti AUDITORIUM ha inizio alla fine del 1988 l’esperienza della casa editrice milanese AUDITORIUM EDIZIONI, che presto pubblica una prima collana di testi dedicati alla musica del nostro tempo (tra jazz, elettronica, colta e rock d’avanguardia) e una serie di cd musicali che spaziano tra i generi meno ortodossi. Auditorium Edizioni pubblica anche le riviste INSOUND e GTR&Bass. Alle nuove collane editoriali RUMORI, sulle esperienze più importanti della musica contemporanea, SCRITTURE, dedicata alla narrativa su temi musicali e CHANGES, monografie dedicate a musicisti italiani e internazionali, si affiancano poi iniziative speciali come il Premio Internazionale "DEMETRIO STRATOS", la mostra videofotografica IL GESTO DEL SUONO, il TROFEO INSOUND per i migliori musicisti italiani e la maratona dedicata al pianoforte INSOUND PIANOFEST. Sull’orlo del collasso economico e finanziario, alla fine del 2012 l’esperienza della casa editrice riceve un nuovo impulso grazie all’intervento provvidenziale di Hans & Alice Zevi, che ne raccolgono l’eredità promuovendone il rilancio.
Mimesis International is a publishing house in the humanities, launched in 2013 by the same group behind Éditions Mimésis and Mimesis Edizioni. Like these other imprints, it is dedicated to an interdisciplinary approach towards research in the humanities, while maintaining a keen interest in philosophy. It is committed to supporting independent thought that, cutting across the traditional disciplines, opens up to uncharted areas of knowledge as well as to non-Western perspectives. Drawing from an ever growing network of universities and cultural centres, with which the publishing group has for many years closely collaborated, Mimesis International thus aims to extend the reach of its connections across Europe and beyond. Spurred on by this cosmopolitan spirit, Mimesis International publishes its texts in English and, in the case of its academic journals, with multilingual contributions.
Oxbow Books was founded in 1983 by David Brown, and started life in a shed in the garden of St Cross College, Oxford. The company quickly outgrew the shed, and moved to more spacious premises where the number of books grew and grew, as did the number of staff. In the mid-1980s an office was established in North America, which became the David Brown Book Company and later Casemate Academic, now a major academic book distributor.
Oxbow Books operates in three areas, all of which it has been involved in from the outset; retail bookselling, through our mail-order catalogues (the well-known Oxbow Book News) and website; publishing, and distribution.
In 2011 the company was bought by Casemate Publishing. Its aims remain the same; to produce high-quality publications, provide our customers with the best information on the books in our field, and a single source of supply.
We are delighted to be celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2013.
