The Institute of Art History's publishing house Artefactum was founded in 1994 with the aim not only of publishing (mainly in Czech, sometimes in English or German) the results of the research of the Institute, but also of making accessible the original work of Czech and international art historians on important European (primarily Central European) topics. It is the only publishing house in the Czech Republic to publish selected dissertations that have been defended at Czech universities in the field of art history.
A dominant role in the financing of the works published is played by the Editorial Board of The Czech Academy of Sciences. The Artefactum publishing house coordinates its activities with the Academia publishing house.
Artefactum publishes two regular series of works: Fontes historiae artium, a series of editions of written sources from Czech and international archives on the history of Czech and international visual art; and Opera minora historiae artium, focusing mainly on monograph studies devoted both to individual artists and to specific works of art. The collection of epigraphic and sepulchral studies Epigraphica & Sepulcralia reflects the current state of research in this field, while independent books on research in this sphere of study are published in the series Epigraphica & Sepulcralia Monographica. Starting at the end of 2013, short texts devoted to selected monuments have been published in an attractive pocket-guide format in the series Monumenta Bohemiae et Moraviae. Among its other standard publications are conference proceedings and research catalogues, and the Bulletin Studia Rudolphina.
