About this item

Beirut, Sarajevo, Gaza, Kiev, Belgrade - these places are indelibly linked to war and conflict in the modern era. In the minds of most Westerners, they also exist in a hazy mix of fact and fiction. Between official government statements and unofficial reports of attacks, riots, uprisings and reprisals, reality on the ground is hard to determine. So, how can we know what we know? The question resonates through the work of filmmaker and artist, Emanuel Licha, who has spent the past 10 years exploring the front-line perspectives of both participants and journalists. Published to accompany a nationally traveling exhibition, this publication documents an installation version of Licha’s creative documentary Hotel Machine. Filmed in the hotels and safe-havens that house war correspondents, the film is presented in a central space surrounded by five adjacent archive stations, which through texts, images and other documents explore aspects of the concept of the “war hotel.”
