WELCOME, installation, 2014
"WELCOME" was a hostel we set up in the centre of Leipzig in an abandoned flat. It was open for 3 days with up to 15 residents. The second half of the time we opened it for 36h as an exhibiton for visitors. We acted as hostel staff in that time, made breakfast, cleaned every morning and held the doors open 24/7.
The residents were partly invited guests from other cities and the other part saw our sign at the street and checked in. While the exhibition was open, the visitors became indistiguishible from the residents, because everyone was forced to cope in this new situation. The project was just released as an exhibition not as a hostel.
