From the 3rd to the 30th of June 2012, visitors were invited to stay at HOTEL PARAVENT, a project hotel located in the exhibition space Tête, in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg district. The space and artwork within it catered to the essential needs of the visitors, who over the course of their stay, entered into a direct dialogue with the pieces as they took care of their most basic requirements.
Within our HOTEL PARAVENT, the hotel room is furnished with hybrids of pure idea and actual necessity – a dissolving paravent, a suspended bed, and a museum plinth turned into a shower.
A night-long dialogue emerges through performative moments of usage as the guest undresses lies down, sleeps, awakens, bathes, and then re-dresses. Focusing on the minimal requirements – privacy, a place for recuperation, and facilities to wash –H O T E L P A R A V E N T offers a fundamentally basic way of staying over the night.
We wish you a pleasant stay!
Currently HOTEL PARAVENT is taking a break. We will keep you informed about our new activities.
all the best
