2017 HOTEL ORANIA BERLIN
Permanent videoinstallation at Hotel Orania Berlin
Projections of 5 Videoworks on 2 windows of the ground floor Hotel area and restaurant, rotating throughout the week. The projectors are permanently and invisibly installed into the windows reveal. The screen is a well selected, transparent roller blind material, making the projection visible from the inside as well as from the outside. The video imagery is merging with the outside street reality from the perspective of the hotel clients, while at the same time it gives the passers-by the possibility to see through the blinds, mixing the inside hotel atmosphere with Manuela Hartel’s fine pieces of video artworks. The Hotel opened in autumn 2017.
The permanent exhibition is extended by video screens with the adapted artwork in restrooms and elevators and by a huge video projection in the backyard, visible from the hotel room window.
