A Piece of Cake in the Museum of Liverpool

Museum of Liverpool, Liverpool, Sep 2012

You can find the 2Up 2Down project in the Museum of Liverpool, in the People's Republic Gallery, on the second floor.

The model shows the plans to redesign the former Mitchell’s Bakery and the two terraced houses next door. The soundtrack is taken from a guided tour to Anfield and tells the story of a community’s struggle to take matters into their own hands.

2Up 2Down/Homebaked is part of The Unexpected Guest. This exhibition, which unfolds across Liverpool in many different venues, is part of Liverpool Biennial 2012. The Unexpected Guest explores notions of hospitality, and the tension between different ‘cultures of hospitality’ where they must co-exist. In a globalising world, increasing mobility and interdependence are changing the way we welcome others, blurring the distinction between host and guest.
