[dropcap]H[/dropcap]uman Hotel is a travel community founded by the artists, curators and visionaires of the social design studio Wooloo and artistic community Wooloo.org, the first online community for professional artists. They are currently based in an old chocolate factory in Copenhagen, Denmark.
They started experimenting in 2007, when in NYC they started Life Exchange, where participants left a Chelsea townhouse with each others clothes and life. In 2008 they organized a festival that brought together artists, creative projects and architects in Berlin. An interesting project of the festival was Fictive Days, where people lived as their favourite fictional character for two weeks.
In 2010, commissioned to create a work for Manifesta 8 biennal, they matched five artists with five blind locals to live and work together. In a completely dark place.
And from 2012 they started the project of Human Hotel, firstly in Copenhagen and then in many other European cities and in the USA.
For example, you could stay in Copenhagen with Cecilia, a visual artist who works with 2-d digital animation and in the field of Artists Books. She teaches workshops for children at the National Gallery of Art in Copenhagen.
She rents her house just near Copenhagen’s lakes and the interiors are perfect for people who love pastel colours.
And while you are booking for Cecilia’s guest room, Human Hotel gives tips for artsy activities to do in the city you are staying. In Copenhagen it’s possible to visit the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and go to Rineke Dijkstra photography exhibition.
Rineke is a true master of modern portraiture that studies identity, vulnerability and dignity. Her photographs show a sense of humanity, empathy and intimacy without sentimentality or indiscretion. She captures people, who are going through a moment of transition or vulnerability. This year she won The Hasselblad Award. Her exhibition started in September and will end on the 30th December 2017.
