"I believe in MasterPeace. World leaders cannot push back armed conflict alone. We need the whole world to make this happen." - Desmond Tutu
Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy are interested in the cultural luggage of international guests and visitors. Often this luggage is the basis of the programme of exhibitions, talks, screenings & shows offered by the Cultural Embassy. Regular guests feel invited to unpack and show their work. This is how a room dedicated to singer Ellen ten Damme and photographer Danny Ellinger came about, and a room of photographer Linda Troeller devoted to the Chelsea Hotel New York.
From 7 March 2014 onwards, room #310 will be devoted to the work of MasterPeace.
From 01/10/2013 until 28/02/2014
