Motto Berlin, a store dedicated to books, magazines, artists’ publications and editions.
Various presentations and publication launches take place every month.
Alexis Zavialoff founded Motto at a time when there was nobody else in Europe working to distribute artist-made titles and experimental small-press publications. His Switzerland-based distribution company then catapulted, seeing more than 3000 titles flying out its doors and opening shops in Copenhagen, Brussels, Berlin and Melbourne. While all the shops benefit from Zavialoff’s distribution catalogue and in turn his impeccable taste, only Berlin has the sheer volume and organised chaos that make exploring its shelves an afternoon-long activity.
