The Beehive experiment is initiated by AWA (artists with attitude), to develop an open and lively exhibition space in the gallery at OT301 (former PSWAR- Public Space With A Roof). The gallery will be open only once a week (Monday evenings) and include some sort of happening like lectures or performances.
Artists who want to participate get one of these little exhibition spaces over a period of 6 month to show whatever he/she likes. It’s free of charge. The only thing we ask the artists is to place a different, interesting artpiece at least every 2 weeks in order to keep the ‘beehive’ lively. You can foward your box to another artist you know and who is interested in participating. The flexible box-architecture will also allow us to change the over-all-look of the art space regularly.
Surprise, flexibility, and self-organization are important points of our concept. Beehive is not a temple but a vivid laboratory, which creates it’s own dynamic. It makes it worthwhile to visit regulary, without knowing exactly what will happen.
