How are artists and tourists related? What is the difference between making and taking pictures? What is the motivation to endlessly repeat existing images? Are tourists and artists a blessing or a curse? What are the consequences of mass tourism, mass photography and mass art production? Are places less real after the tourists and artists have been there?
ONLY FOR TOURISTS brings together the works of ten international artists whose work is concerned with the theme of tourism. Prepare to meet happy naive backpackers, a gang of big game hunters, a time-traveling tourist, the world’s largest statue of the Pope, a hiker in the Scottish Highlands, Chinese pseudo-savages, the Mona Lisa, Mongolian wrestlers, the Statue of Liberty, and Santa Claus.
