About Motto Charlottenborg
Motto Distribution started in Zurich in 2007 by Alexis Zavialoff as a distribution company specializing in magazines and fanzines. Today Motto has expanded with bookshops in cities including Berlin, Brussels and Vancouver and is characterized by its wide selection of artist publications, books on art, architecture, design, graphics and illustration, as well as smaller self-published items and editions.
Motto Charlottenborg will function as a bookstore within the institution and as a platform for discussions around publishing art, design, graphics, and related matters, through presentations of books, talks and events, related to the book as a format.
Events in Motto Charlottenborg
The Bookstore hosts events separately and in collaboration with Kunsthal Charlottenborg. For example book receptions and a series of Book Talks in which an artist or other art professional is invited to curate a selection of books for the bookstore as well as a 'show and tell' presentation of the selection.
