Universal Hospitality 2

MeetFactory Gallery

May. 28, 2017

Ke Sklárně 3213/15, Prague, Czech Republic

Universal Hospitality 2 is the continuation of Universal Hospitality held in the frame of Vienna Festival 2016.

The exhibition is in the collaboration with Centrum současného umění Futura.

In the rapidly changing world dismantling of elements of democracy and rising populism became the mainstream even in the affluent countries. The European Union is endangered by Brexit and Eastern European nationalisms and corruption, while authoritarianism and state control is emerging in different countries encouraged by the regime change in the United States. Socially committed artists are looking behind the Potemkin wall, and search for interconnections and drives behind the downward social spiral. The exhibitions aim to stimulate the deeper understanding of the elements behind the changes, and to galvanize progressives. Next to providing criticism they aim to fortify resistance as well. Instead of providing stake-less entertainment the exhibitions offer a sort of visual analysis of complex social processes in a turbulent time.

The opening of the exhibition will be on March 3. It starts in Centrum současného umění Futura at 6 pm and it will be open by Dante Buu The Winner Takes It All / Vítěz bere vše performance.
The opening night will be continue in MeeFactory where Ference Grófa/Société Réaliste, Universal Anthem performance will be hold at 7:40 pm.
