MBnB: book a Broodthaers-inspired New York studio for $95 per night
MBnB by the Broodthaers Society of America
If the Marcel Broodthaers retrospective at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (until 15 May) hasn’t quenched your thirst for the Belgian artist’s witty work, you can now crash in a Broodthaers-inspired studio apartment for just $95 per night (with a two-night minimum). During the retrospective, the Broodthaers Society of America—actually the controversial New York artist Joe Scanlan working under an institutional pseudonym—has made the “MBnB” apartment available through the accommodation service AirBnB.

“Broodthaers fans from across the United States and around the world planning on travelling to New York to see the MoMA show will not only appreciate the comfortable amenities… but also enjoy secure access to an extensive archive of Broodthaers editions, catalogues, scholarship, and ephemera”, Scanlan says in a press release.

The studio is located in the Harlem neighbourhood of Manhattan in a 115-year-old brownstone. It accommodates two guests and comprises one queen-sized bed, a kitchenette, a full bath and a living room that doubles as a reading room and archive for Broodthaers material.

Dogs and cats are welcome.
