The Live Art Development Agency (LADA) present a special screening of Hotel Obscura as part of their LADA Screens programme. Hotel Obscura is a documentary  about a series of one-to-one performances that took place in a hotel in Vienna, Austria, produced by Die Fabrikanten. For the launch event we are very pleased to be joined by Wolfgang Preisinger and Anatol Bogendorfer from Die Fabrikanten, Brian Lobel, a participating artist in Hotel Obscura and co-creator of the Documenting Intimacy project in collaboration with LADA, and Mandy Romero curator of the Tranny Hotel, a project which took place at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool in 2011 and was part of Die Fabrikanten’s Exchange Radical Moments Live Art Festival. They will be talking about one-to-one performance and creating work in hotels. Supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum

About Hotel Obscura: The setting for the event was the Magdas hotel in Vienna, a hotel run by refugees where guests meet different artists in one-to-one settings. The event asked participants to what extent is someone willing to open themselves up to a stranger and enter into an encounter? Die Fabrikanten have been working as artists and curators for 27 years and are based in Linz, Austria.

Director: Anatol Bogendorfer
