ABOUT MY WORK
I 2002, I was part of creating wooloo.org - the world's first online community for artists. This was 1 year before Myspace launched (do you remember MySpace?) and people advised us to get offline and make some "real" art.
So, we did.
For the next 10 years, we exhibited at a wealth of institutional and non-profit venues including Artists Space, New York (2004), the Third Guangzhou Triennial, Guangzhou (2008), Manifesta 8, Murcia (2010), the Sixth Momentum Biennial, Moss (2011), Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art, Gothenbrug (2013), Athens Biennial, Athens (2013) and the 55th Venice Biennial, Venice (2013) among many other places.
However, after independently organizing the homestays of more than 3,000 climate activists with local hosts in Copenhagen during the COP15, it was hard to get really excited about white gallery spaces again.
So here we are. Floating into the big www once more with Human Hotel. Thinking this time we can create a better sharing economy for hospitality. It seems to be worth a try.
