The ‘International Village Shop’ is the work of the artist group Myvillages, founded by Kathrin Böhm (United Kingdom, 1969), Wapke Feenstra (The Netherlands, 1959) and Antje Schiffers (Germany, 1967). It is a social sculpture and distribution channel in one. The shop sells local products, and new things developed for it by villagers all over the world: frogbutter spoons from Bavaria, caravan flowerpots from Northern Ireland, fufu bowls from Ghana. The range of goods represents local resources, international connections and regional cooperations, showing us a treasure of ideas and knowledge from the countryside.
This program is initiated by K_nstvl___ and Amsterdam Art, in collaboration with Kunstverein Springhornhof and Rozenstraat - a rose is a rose is a rose.
