Avant-Garde Critical Studies, a series founded in 1987 for themed-anthologies and monographs on all aspects of avant-garde and avant-gardism in modern literature, theatre, music, visual and applied arts, architecture and design from the late nineteenth century to the present.

We publish high quality research on specific trends in single arts, countries and regions, as well as comparative and interdisciplinary studies in the interrelation between the different arts as well as between the arts, social and political contexts and cultural life in the broadest sense and all its diversity.
From students till professors interested in any aspect of the avant-garde. The series covers the full scope of avant-garde artistic, cultural, and social expressions and movements. Relevant also for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in art history, cultural history, literary studies, and transnational studies as well as an international audience of scholars and museum experts.
‘Avant-Garde Critical Studies is not only since decades one of the leading academic platforms devoted to research in and reflection on the twentieth-century artistic avant-garde but also the oldest scholarly forum specifically devoted to artistic avant-gardism in the widest sense. […] The first eleven volumes could for long only be found on bookshelves in libraries. These volumes have now been made available in digital form. They offer a monumental panorama of early avant-garde studies and may still serve today as major resource with fundamental contributions by eminent avant-garde scholars. […] The goal of the series, as set out in issue zero in 1987 by Fernand Drijkoningen, was – and still is today – to serve as a platform to transcend ‘traditional boundaries between disciplines and nationalities’ with ‘an “open” character’. In line with this ambition, the single volumes from the early years of the series all have a profound multifaceted character. Each volume combines essays on different artistic disciplines, be it literature, painting, sculpture, architecture, design, music, performance and film.’
