tinyBE is an innovative exhibition and event format that aims to facilitate an interdisciplinary dialogue at the interface of the visual arts, architecture, design and science. Thanks to their habitability, the sculptures allow a fusion between art and life. tinyBE plans to run the exhibition as part of a series that is a unique hybrid between sculpture park and public discourse.

Although the habitable sculptures are primarily works of art, visitors who spend a night in one of them at the tinyBE exhibition will not experience any discomfort—on the contrary: each of the sculptures is equipped with a comfortable bed supplied by our partner Steigenberger Hotels.
