Der Laden wird Teil des Programms "Das Dorf" im Kunsthaus Langenthal in der Schweiz sein.

Die Ausstellung thematisiert das Dorf mit seinen Minderwertigkeitsgefühlen, den nachbarschaftlichen Verpflichtungen, aber auch der Freiheit, kein Zentrum sein zu müssen. Keine Metropole sein zu wollen birgt das Potenzial, als Biotop für alternative Lebensentwürfe anders zu bleiben. Und gehen die Menschen in Langenthal ins Zentrum ihrer Stadt, sagen sie: «Wir gehen ins Dorf.»

Zur Ausstellung erscheint ein Katalog mit Texten von Madeleine Emmenegger, Fanni Fetzer, Benedikt Loderer, Eveline Suter.  In the catalogue Eveline Suter wrote a text about this Langenthaler shop by myvillages.org (catalogue available over Kunsthaus Langenthal  http://www.kunsthauslangenthal.ch ) .

Andere KünstlerInnen in der Ausstellung sind
Ueli Alder (CH), Gijs Frieling (NL), Urs Hug (CH), Reto Leibundgut (CH), Yves Mettler Mettler (mit Gilles Aubry) (CH), Myvillages.org (Kathrin Böhm, D, Wapke Feenstra, NL, Antje Schiffers, D),  Łukasz Skapski (PL), Sofie Thorsen (DK), Lena Maria Thüring (CH)

Mit Kammerspielen von Urs Hug und Künstlerfahnen von Création Baumann.
