Motoco, a very strange name for an unusual place in
. It actually means“More to come” and refers to an association located in one of the buildings of the former DMC factory in Mulhouse. I had often heard about it but it took me a while to really understand what it was all about. Motoco is in fact both a place of work for the 140 artists in residence and a place for events, for anyone who wants to rent the huge room on the first floor. It must be said that the place all in brick has a crazy charm!

Motoco is therefore a place of work but can be visited on the occasion of open days, events or workshops organized by Motoco artists. The visit is worth it, it’s not a simple coworking space but a place full of history (DMC was a huge textile factory in Mulhouse, so its industrial wastelands are extremely impressive) where an incredible creative atmosphere reigns. We go from an ultra-modern recording studio to a huge painter’s studio, a photo exhibition, a ceramics workshop, textiles, furniture or a space where a short film is being shot… Fascinating!


You can also climb on the roof of the building to see the immensity of the industrial wasteland left by the DMC factory, which still exists but now occupies a very small space. No doubt about it, Motoco is really a must-see place in Mulhouse if you haven’t had the opportunity yet!

I liked

  • Visit one of the buildings of the DMC industrial wasteland
  • Discover a small part of the universe of Motoco’s artists

I liked less

  • This is normal, but it is not always possible to visit: watch for open doors!
