Hotel Gelem

While the majority of people are looking for exotic and adventurous for holidays, the prevailing necessity of mobility and improvisation are a bitter reality for people under precarious living conditions. HOTEL GELEM invites the viewer to participate in extreme living conditions, and inventes new forms of exchange, illustration and reflection of the phenomena, which should have happened 'never again' after the second world war. HOTEL GELEM leads to places in which romantic transfiguration coincides with racial persecution – and it overcomes those new walls in Europe that divide our society dramatically.
