Traumawien is an independent publishing house founded in 2010 to release digital poetry and conceptual writing as products.[1]

Traumawien displayed print books of experimental writers and artists such as Audun Mortensen, Ubermorgen, Oswald Wiener[2] and published, among others, Mimi Cabell and Jason Huff's experimental reworking of the classic American Psycho[3][4][5] which was exhibited at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume in 2012.[6]

Traumawien completed their initial publication series with the e-book system 'Ghostwriters' on copyright and user exploitation[7][8][9][10][11] and disseminated a 42.000 titles e-book torrent contaminated with advertising slogans[12][13] in 2013.

From 2013 to 2015 the publishers event 'Artclub Rave Lecture[14]' - a working synthesis of industrial techno and literary reading/lecture, dubbed by Deutschlandfunk as 'the most radical performance[15]' at europes largest event for young literature Prosanova - became a Vienna club scene check-point.

In 2014 Traumawien created an ongoing series of nonprofit products from Zazzle, an online merchandise print on demand service, customized with content appropriated from various social media.[16]

Also in 2014 a manifesto[17] in "Manifeste für eine Literatur der Zukunft" with Neue Rundschau/S. Fischer Verlag/Frankfurt was released.[18][19]

Meme Products were presented at 21erHaus Vienna Summer 2016.[20]

The publisher cites conceptual writer Vanessa Place as a crucial influence.
