A B O U T WHOSE LAND HAVE I LIT ON NOW? Contemplations on the Notions of Hostipitality unfolds through an exhibition, performances, lectures, film screenings and other time-based experiences to deliberate on concepts of hospitality and the triggers of hostility in hospitality.
In an age of flourishing resentments and antipathy towards all that seems conceptually or physically “strange”/a “stranger,” in a time when the historical violence of the guest (as colonizer) over the host is reiterated and fortified, and in an era that increasingly turns hospitality into a neoliberal commodity, it becomes urgent to reconsider hospitality’s gradients of power. While departing from the national context of Germany, and taking Derrida’s notion of “hostipitality” as a point of commencement, the project is not limited in geography, history, philosophy nor culture to these origins, but rather addresses concepts of hospitality in a global context.
