Contemplations on the notions of hostipitality
Invocations: 08.–10.06.2018, Cupola
Exhibition: 18.05–24.06.2018, SAVVY Contemporary
SAVVY Contemporary invites artists, curators, musicians and other thinkers to deliberate on concepts of hospitality and the triggers of hostility in hospitality – through ‘contemplation spaces’ of an exhibition and a series of invocations. Much is happening today that calls for a reflection on hospitality in Germany, in Europe, and in the world at large from the breakdown of the German Gastfreundschaft during the so called ‘refugee crisis’, to the continued dispossession of settler colonialist projects and the aggressive boom of the ‘hospitality industry’.
