CRC/bookshop is the first installment of Consumer Research Center/. Located on Level 3 of the Carpenter Center, this platform is a collaboration between the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts and Motto Books (based in Berlin). CRC/bookshop provides students and visitors with access to more than 500 titles by artists, critics, filmmakers, and cultural institutions from around the world. As a ground for cultural production, it also hosts activities that transform the consumer outlet of a bookshop into a bookshop/exhibition, bookshop/screening, and bookshop/talk.
