Pasting photography all over the walls of Hotel Bogota. On Sunday, 55 photographers transformed the empty rooms of Hotel Bogota’s 4th floor into a vast photo gallery. All pictures were pasted to the wall and will remain until the restoration (or, well: distortion) of the building. Open daily from 4 to 8 pm. Schlüterstr. 45. Final showdown and finissage is on Saturday.

To raise money for Hotel Bogota (see previous post) more than 70 photographers have donated photographs for an auction next Sunday. Among a lot of local artists there are also pieces of Martin Parr, Rene Buri, Michael Ackermann or Oskar Lebeck. Check out the auction website and the full catalogue (PDF).
Just a few weeks after my exhibition in one of the most charming photo places in West Berlin, Hotel Bogota is in serious trouble. The Hotel Bogota is not only the last “Salonhotel” on Kurfürstendamm but also a grand piece of Berlin’s cultural history. Before the war, there was the studio of fashion photographer Yva, where Helmut Newton learned his craft. The list of photographers who have photographed and exhibited there is endless. The hotel also hosts a lot of other cultural events – from art exhibitions to literature, from Tango nights to readings, concerts, whatever.
What’s best for a hotel that has financial trouble? BOOK IT.
Forget the large hotel chains that ruin family run hotels such as the Hotel Bogota. Ignore the illegal holiday flats that have become so pupular in Berlin. They don’t even pay tax!
Hotel Bogota has three price categories, the cheapest affordable even for backpackers. Stay where all the big names form Newton to Parr stay when they are in Berlin. In the probably most photogenic hotel in Berlin!
