In addition to that purpose, um:ag also serves as a culture and art centre where people who reject mediocrity in literature, philosophy, cinema, painting and visual arts could come together.

um:ag Publications compile all works and articles of Uğur Mumcu in books and present them to the readers in order to evaluate the past and understand today. With new publications every year, um:ag introduces its research series, special series and new studies to its readers.
