I always find myself being more interested in the people at the show than the show itself.

ABOUT MY SPACE
Please come stay with me in central Nørrebro, my favorite Copenhagen neighborhood!
I live in a two-story duplex with 3 balconies - actually it's three 130 year-old working class apartments turned into one! Right across from a local park and with cafes, galleries and shawarma bars just around the corner. Fun days, quite nights.
Lot's of other Human Hotel members live in this area and there's a great community feeling around. I love living here and I think you will too.

ABOUT ME & MY WORK
"Martin is an amazing host. I felt so comfortable at his house. He is a busy person who still has time and energy for the guests and this is the best about the Human Hotel! Definitely recommend the stay! You will get a lot of energy for anything you want to do."
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.
