Organized and circulated by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal With the support of the Government of Canada through its Department of Canadian Heritage Museums Assistance Program

The exhibition consists of an installation version of the hour-long creative documentary Hotel Machine that was filmed by Emanuel Licha in five cities—Beirut, Sarajevo, Gaza, Kyiv and Belgrade—in five hotels that house war correspondents covering conflicts. The film is presented in one central projection space surrounded by five adjacent archive stations, which through texts, images and documents define aspects of the concept of the “war hotel.”
