The Student Hotel (City)

Wibautstraat 129, Amsterdam

‘Het Museum voor Onbedoelde Kunst’ elevates everything in public space to art. Everything can be art if you tell an artistic story with it, right? Every half hour an intimate group of people will be taken on to the expansive balcony surrounding The Student Hotel and show what unintended art can be found on the roofs. People enter Het Museum voor Onbedoelde Kunst as an unintentional layperson and leave the museum as an unintentional art connoisseur.
