HERSHMAN LEESON, Lynn
The Dante Hotel / The Novalis Hotel

A double publication by Lynne Hershman Leeson: a copyshop facsimile of The Dante Hotel, a book made by the artist on the occasion of her legendary project in an abandoned hotel in North Beach, San Francisco, in 1973–74; and The Novalis Hotel, a documentation of the eponymous project organized in Berlin in 2008, at the invitation of Anna Gritz, curator at KW. In both cases the hotel rooms become vehicles to narratives and character-based installations, and give way to a reflection on identities, subjectivity, in relation to technologies of the self and surveillance devices.
