A very special exhibition project awaits you at Metzlerpark on the Museumsufer. Here you can see eight sculptures by international artists. And what's more: if you are interested, the sculptures can also be temporarily inhabited. Until September 26, the non-profit tinyBE Society presents artistically free, visionary, utopian or even dystopian ideas on experimental forms of living and dwelling.
The basic idea behind it was that renowned international artists create habitable sculptures that make fundamental questions of our society, how we want to live and what we actually need, tangible. To be seen and experienced here are artworks by Onur Gökmen - Christian Jankowski - Alison Knowles - Terence Koh - MY-CO-X - Laure Prouvost - Mia Eve Rollow & Caleb Duarte - Sterling Ruby - Thomas Schütte and Charlotte Posenenske make up the first edition of tinyBE - living in a sculpture.
In addition to six "livable sculptures," a stove sculpture with bench seating by Sterling Ruby forms the communal center of the temporary sculpture park. In addition, there are shower/toilet cabins on site. The sculptures are continuously guarded by security. The works by Laure Prouvost, Thomas Schütte, Onur Gökmen and Alison Knowles can be locked separately. All other sculptures are protected and guarded by partitions. The Corona hygiene measures of the city of Frankfurt am Main apply.
Those wishing to stay in the sculptures can book one of two options: A Night-Experience is bookable as a double room for 15 hours (19:00-10:00) at a price of € 364,00 including cleaning costs, sanitary incl. shower, hotel service, security. Alternatively there is the Day-Experience. This is also bookable as a double room for 2 hours (14:00-16:00) at a price of € 166.00. For the comfort in the sculptures provide the partner hotels Steigenberger, Welcome Hotel and Oranien Hotel, which have provided the beds in the works of art.

PROGRAM FOR SCHOOL CLASSES
- Workshop I: Race your voice - Your voice in public space
- Workshop II: Place to be - My/Your/Our Living Space
.In addition, there is also the event series tinyMONDAYS
.This series of events accompanying the exhibition creates an intellectual space for a cross-generational dialogue on meaningful living and visions for the future, and promotes an interdisciplinary exchange on topics related to the sustainability of alternative living and living spaces. In doing so, it links key speakers from the fields of culture, science and business. tinyBE has set itself the goal with tinyMONDAYS of creating an interactive and inspiring discussion space about possible living models or even lifestyles of the future on the basis of artistic concepts.
