Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy - Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, 1019 BN, Netherlands



  • Ll_Tribune_Eastside

Date: Sunday 30 November
Location: Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy
Time: 11.00 - 14.00 hrs, ongoing presentations each lasting for about an hour
Admission: free

Retake of ten-part series of live presentations from 2004-2005. With video works by Carolien Scholtes, text readings by Mira van de Lubbe directed by Teuntje Klinkenberg, and live music by Pand7090 with Jacq Palinckx, Nora Mulder and Koen Kaptijn.

The presentation refers to specific eras from the history of Lloyd Hotel,  which from 1921 served subsequently as emigrant hotel, refugee camp, war prison, general prison, youth prison and artists' studios. 

At the occasion of the opening of Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy in 2004, video artist Carolien Scholtes, musician Jacq Palinckx and writer Marian Boyer become inspired by the turbulent history of the building. Scholtes produces associative videoworks, Palinckx transcribes the history in sound and Boyer writes letters in which she gives a voice to various hotel guests. The stories come alive in the hotel rooms, the hall-ways, in the attic, along the staircases and in the restaurant. Like a journey through time. 

In this retake of Ll-Tribune the ideosyncratic music sounds again. The letters will be re-read as if the -temporary- inhabitants have returned. The Cultural Embassy of Lloyd Hotel presents the imagination of the past anew.
