    Introductory text:

    ” Is this a new form of Airbnb or a regular family home? Yes. Is it a protest or a celebration? No. Do they love art or seek to destroy it? Yes. Who is the family? No. What year is this? Yes. Why do they need visitors? No. Who’s actually in charge around here? No. What does it mean for our future? Yes. And so on? Maybe.

    The House of Beautifully Earned Trust is devised by Adam Chodzko and performed by Muster Station. Muster Station  is a rethinking and regrouping; an evolving group of artists that emerged from the closure of their art school at the University of Kent. As a sequel to, and inversion of, Chodzko’s The School of Beginnings held at Tate Modern, (February, 2018), strategically moving from the UK’s largest and most acclaimed institution for contemporary art to a small provincial house, the Muster Station artists ask you to now put your trust in them, to show you a video, a sound, a walk and a home; The House of Beautifully Earned Trust. ”
