press release

Cordially Invited is an international exhibition as well as a series of discussions, presentations and screenings (developed in collaboration with Nomads & Residents, IDFA, and Prince Claus Fund) around the themes of hospitality vis-a vis a topic of major political and ethical consequence: migration. The project explores these issues through the notion of a cordial invitation, understood here as a symbolikc tool which can be used to negotiate between two imginary, unattainable ideals: the unrestricted right to move across political and economic boundaries, and the unqualified acceptance such rights imply.

Participating artists, artists' collectives, and cultural producers: Academic Traning Group, Francis Alÿs, JoÏe Bar‰i, Otto Berchem, Monica Bonvicini, Mona Hatoum, Július Koller, Jifií Kovanda, Denisa Lehocká, Mapping Worlds, Roman Ondák, Boris Ondreiãka, Amalia Pica, Wilfredo Prieto García, Marko Raat, Mindaugas Ratavicius/Giedrius Kumetaitis, Jeroen de Rijke/Willem de Rooij, Ene-Liis Semper, Monika Sosnowska, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, and Nomads & Residents (with work by Pablo Helguera, Lisl Ponger, Dan Perjovschi, Lia Perjovschi, Vangelis Vlahos, Grenzeloos Kijken (a project by Stichting Kunst en Cultuur Zuid-Holland), and others.
