Aeromoto it’s the first public library in Mexico City specialized in contemporary art. It was made possible thanks to the founders: Maru Calva,Mauricio Marcin and Jeronimo Rüedi, who took their personal libraries into a common place and opened it to the public for free.  We started with almost 1,000 books.

At this day Aeromoto has more than 2,300 books.

 

“Aeromoto is a cloud or a sugar cube resting on the top of a bar’s mat.

It is a public library where people can consult and take books home in two week periods to leaf through at the pace they want.

We firmly believe that a library exists for people to take hold of books and use them and that artist books should be part of this belief too.

Aeromoto is a modest publisher. We make books and editions; we have an obsessive romance with the permanent: that ink and stone that gets our hands dirty.

We look after the books, we take care of them and we know they are a pleasure. That is why we want to share them with others.

Aeromoto is not a bookstore but books may be on sale to help distribute other publisher’s and individual’s work.

Aeromoto is a replicable archive for all ages. You can find magazines, old and new, postcards, audio, multiples, periodicals, posters, books by artists, bookworks, and many more.

Aeromoto is an airquake.”
