El Hotel Electrico

Client: Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp
When does animation become art? What remains of animation when it leaves the cinema or TV screen, and manifests itself in other spaces? The exhibition El Hotel Eléctrico – Rooms Available sets out in search of the many expressions of the phenomenon of ‘animation’ in a broader sense, starting with the medium in its earliest forms, at a time when this artistic practice was not yet constrained by the conventions and clichés of the film industry. Posters were commissioned for the exhibition, as well as a flipbook, containing an animation of Marcel Duchamp's famous atelier door.
