OPEN HOUSE - a group show on hospitality
Kunstverein Braunschweig, Braunschweig, Germany
For the first time since 2007, the gallery spaces in the Villa Salve Hospes are being filled with a thematic group exhibition: OPEN HOUSE – A Group Show on Hospitality brings together eleven international artistic positions whose works provide commentaries on hospitality as a social, cultural and political phenomenon. The very inscription “Salve Hospes“ (lat. “Be welcome, guest”), which stands like a motto above the main entrance of the exhibition building, already suggests the dedication of a show on hospitality in the Kunstverein Braunschweig.
