The aim of literature promotion is to strengthen the profile of literature from Africa, Asia and Latin America in Switzerland. artlink supports translation through Südkulturfonds and Der Andere Literaturklub. Der Andere Literaturklub offers its members four new publications in German translation per year plus free admission to literary events. artlink has a large network, provides information on literary events (newsletter), documents authors living in Switzerland (library) and advises event organisers and readers. The interchanges that take place between the various languages and book markets in Switzerland are also important to artlink.
