The Mayflower in Beyrouth, the Ukraine Hotel in Kiev, the Peace Hotel in Mogadishu… These hotels accommodated most of the journalists who reported on the conflicts in these cities. A “war hotel” is the place from which war is looked at, analyzed, discussed and enunciated, thus playing an active role in the way we perceive the events. Hotel Machine is a reflection on the production of representations of conflicts. It is the story of a hotel that remembers.
