Wooloo is a Danish artist group founded in 2002 by Sixten Kai Nielsen and Martin Rosengaard. The group has developed a working method based on engaging diverse participants — residents, visitors, other artists and activist groups — in simultaneously re-examining established modes of interacting and questioning their underlying power structures. One example is Wooloo’s free housing of three thousand activists with private families during the UN climate change summit in Copenhagen (2009). Another is their 2002 launch of the online community wooloo.org long before such social networks were commonplace. Today, wooloo.org connects the resources of more than 35,000 cultural producers from 180+ countries. Wooloo’s Human Hotel community continues to open up homes around the world.
