hospitality is about sharing a home, temporarily. it’s about saving the cat, that tries to escape over the roof. it’s a momentum of deep dive into a person‘s life. an intimate portray of the everyday — between working schedules, hormone cycles, empty fridges and wifi passwords.

it’s about hiding the keys outside to secure independent arrivals;

hospitality is like a warm blanket covering your shoulders and the question ‚have you been cold tonight?‘. it’s getting to know your friend‘s mum at lunch. sharing conversations in two and a half languages, losing track sometimes. but a good laugh bridges every gap. hospitality is an attitude in action.

Hospitality for me means opening my own space to someone I invited. My guests may come and go as they please, my guests may take part in any ritual of my house, they may discover the way I live. Now and then I also ask if they want to share something they enjoy doing. However my house remains my space with a certain way of living that I have developed. Hospitality means sharing your life reality. Hospitality means creating a safe space where guests are welcome. Hospitality means opening the energy of your house to other people and acknowledging that this shared experience will also shape the house I live in.


Discover my space

"The law of absolute, pure, unconditional, hyperbolic hospitality, asks us to say 'yes' to the newcomer/ arrivant, before any determination, before any prevention, before any identification - irrespective of being a stranger, an immigrant, a guest or an unexpected visitor." (Derrida)


Say yes
