Los Angeles (United States)
An Intimate Affair. Be Our Guest if you Dare.
The Bedroom, especially the Girl’s Bedroom was revealed in the 1970s as a cultural site of production and consumerism that is hidden, that keeps itself a secret from public view. The Girl’s Bedroom is a sacred place where some of the most mysterious rites of passages are performed. Behind those closed doors, we find
a notorious place of underground culture, specifically the production and consumption of subculture. The Artist’s Studio is almost as good in keeping secrets as the Girl’s Bedroom. Here artists hold secret meetings and conversations where only insiders have access. For this year’s WAS Biennale the artists Johanna Braun and Michael Niemetz invite two lucky participants and a group of local artist (who will be announced only to the participating guests) to investigate those transgressiv practices and spend a night with them in one of the most infamous haunted Hotels in Los Angeles: The Cecil Hotel. Be our guest, if you dare.
