READING IN THE ANALOGUE HOTEL ROOM

25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier

2.10.2018, 3pm–7pm

A nostalgia date over Vienna’s rooftops, a panoramic view of the past, an anachronistic tête-à-tête with entertainment value: In “Gerade gestern” (Carl Hanser Verlag), writer Martin Meyer remembers what defined everyday life ten, 20, or 30 years ago. Florian “Doc” Kaps, founder of SUPERSENSE and specialist for analogue mischief, used these objects to furnish a room in 25hours Hotel: turntable, typewriter, instant camera, tube television set. As part of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, the former editor of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung newspaper’s arts supplement and the analogue expert met up in the bed of this temple of nostalgia for a reading and a conversation. An entertaining meet-up between the present and yesterday, a festive evening at the 25hours Hotel, as always.
