The pavilion has enjoyed the admiration of the general public and the recognition of the international professional community, by museum directors and curators as well as by art critics, journalists, gallery owners and collectors.

The exhibition by Mike Bourscheid presented costumes, transformed household objects, musical pieces and performances of Bourscheid himself who told cheerful stories about gender identity, family heritage and cultural history, thus attempting to transform the traditional conception of the role of art in everyday life.
