TJ Hospodar (b. Cincinnati, 1977) is a trained photographer working in performance—comprising sound, image and movement. His interest in hospitality is explored through a service based aesthetic, tackling subjects such as meal-sharing, collective transportation, alternative housing, gift economies, interpersonal activity and correspondence. The work takes various forms, depending on project, such as a soup kitchen, dinner theatre, carpool or car service, hostel, bed and breakfast, conference, lecture, library, support group, phone call, postcard, bookmark, brag letter and recipe card. He has shown work at Dixon Place, Emily Harvey Foundation, Goethe Institut, Jan Hus Church, Judson Memorial Church, Westwood Gallery (New York); Cobble Hill Tunnel, Homestead Gallery, Launchpad (Brooklyn); Boggsville Boatel, Flux Factory, Sculpture Center (Queens); Okazi Gallery, FIT (Berlin); Manifatture Knos (Lecce); Wittmann’s (Vienna); Galeria de Diseño Casa Prado (Barranquilla). His residencies include Pulse Laser Holography (Holocenter) at OSU and Moving Landscape (PepeNero) in Lecce.
