Programme update TRANNY HOTEL!!! (pdf, 1,5 mb)

Tranny Hotel took place from 10 to 12 of June 2011 in Cologne in cooperation with ASA Art Service Association.

This project is intended to provide a focus for the special qualities of transgender across boundaries of place and time, offering both artists and audiences a diverse set of opportunities to engage with each other and so open up the rich and provocative culture of transgender to a wide public of interest. It will also raise the profile of transgender art across the continent.

Statement by Mandy Romero: The visitor will visit a hotel – a very different experience from staying in one. It will be a temporary home for art and artists. Knowing that it is the Tranny Hotel for this period and, maybe anticipating a freak-show, the potential visitor will either be attracted or turned off by the prospect of a set of rooms containing various encounters with artists of a transgender character. Diversity being innately witty and playful, we may expect intimate conversations, public displays, performances, pictures, installations – everything is possible and the artists will be there to manage provocative but accessible experiences for all. There will be creative transactions, from which the audience and artist will emerge enriched and mutually enlightended. Any inital fears will be displaced by fascination and the only risk we all face is that our ideas about people, society and gender may be shifted during our stay in this temporary “place”.

Mandy Romero is a transgender artist, a created identity but not a conventional alter ego. Her main performance focus is on Live Art actions and interactions, which she has carried out in places as diverse as Barcelona, Shanghai, Copenhagen and the Pearl River Delta. She is currently based in Liverpool.
