To accompany the exhibitions, two books have been published that treat the theme of "Shrinking Cities" on several levels - global, mental, and cultural. Cultural processing and managing strategies stand in the center of these comprehensive publications, which grasp the challenge of shrinking cities as a design task.
The bilingual Atlas der schrumpfenden Städte/Atlas of Shrinking Cities, describes and analyzes for the first time the phenomenon globally in maps, diagrams, texts, and portraits of cities.
The digital publications Shrinking Cities: Complete Works 1+2 document the international investigation in the form of video works, research material, and the documentation of the contributions to the exhibition. Also recently published: Complete Works 3: Japan.
In the series Working Papers the results of research on Shrinking Cities are published on-line and in print-on-demand form.
