The non-profit organisation tinyBE is launching the first-ever exhibition of temporary habitable sculptures by a group of international artists at three outdoor locations in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main metropolitan region from 26 June to 26 September 2021. Eight visionary, utopian or even dystopian ideas on experimental forms of living will be on show at three public spaces on the Main river including the Metzlerpark in Frankfurt, the Hessisches Landesmuseum in Darmstadt and the front of the Museum Wiesbaden.
tinyBE is an innovative exhibition and event format that aims to facilitate an interdisciplinary dialogue at the interface of the visual arts, architecture, design and science. Thanks to their habitability, the sculptures allow a fusion between art and life. tinyBE plans to run the exhibition as part of a series that is a unique hybrid between sculpture park and public discourse.
Although the habitable sculptures are primarily works of art, visitors who spend a night in one of them at the tinyBE exhibition will not experience any discomfort – on the contrary: each of the sculptures is equipped with a comfortable bed supplied by our partner Steigenberger Hotels, Welcome Hotel and Oranien Hotel.
