Residency dates: 1 June – 4 July, 2020
Open for public: 11 June – 4 July, 2020
Cinema: Priscila Fernandes, Portrait of an Artist
After almost three months of being closed to the public, Hotel Maria Kapel [HMK] re-opens its doors for the public with Happier Than a Seagull with a French Fry by artist Priscila Fernandes. With this residency we invite visitors to witness the creation of an impressive new work in Fernandes’ Labour Series, an ongoing reflection on the dichotomy between work and leisure. In times of an almost complete collapse of the boundaries between work private life, socialising and time to enjoy, Fernandes’ project offers a possibility to reflect on the connections between work, our bodies and the systems that connect them.
Please note: HMK reopens to the public on June 11th, 13.00. From June 11th – July 4th HMK is open from Thursday to Saturday, from 13.00 to 17.00 pm. We take all necessary COVID-precautions in order to protect the safety of our visitors. For any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New online programme, reflecting on recent events regarding the COVID-19 crisis, exploring ways of caring and coping, finding a new normal and imagining possible futures for ourselves and cultural institutions.
