Hotel transvaal & molar lines as a tool for opening up spaces of hospitality

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    In this chapter Hotel Transvaal is used as a case study to add to the discussion: 'How hospitality practices can lead to spaces of difference?' In the case of Hotel Transvaal, artists attribute'hospitality' principles to draw attention towards massive state interventions in the so called problem Neighbourhoods. The artists invite others to experience this transformation through a stay in Hotel Transvaal. Hotel Transvaal is unlike any other hotel, since it is not fixed in one building, but includes an entire neighbourhood. A neighbourhood houses residents and Hotel Transvaal turns these residents into hosts and guests. These authors indicate how Hotel Transvaal, by playing with the organizing principles of hospitality, can facilitate difference by evoking unexpected becomings and intensities. This article is built up as follows: Firstly, the transformation process of the Transvaal neighbourhood is described, where the neighbourhood forms the context for Hotel Transvaal. Secondly, the setting of the daily operations of Hotel Transvaal is conceptualized as a space of hospitality, which can be regarded as a Deleuzian assemblage with a certain extent of organization. This conceptualization clears the road for the third part, a spotlight on the becomings and intensities which are 'produced' by the assemblage Hotel Transvaal. The last section discusses the becomings and intensities within a larger context of art, new space and cultural laboratories.
