art'otel Berlin Mitte

The romance between the hotel industry and contemporary art is a global trend by now, as the public spaces of hotels are often a cross between miniature museums and art galleries. Despite this trend, not too many hotels dare to be as extreme as the art'otel Berlin Mitte, which has devoted its walls to only a single artist, the German painter, graphic artist and sculptor Georg Baselitz (b. 1938). Recently reconstructed, the hotel has a collection of 328 works by the artist, displayed in both the public spaces and in each of the 190 guest rooms. Baselitz’s prints range from classic engravings and etchings to linocuts. Three large linocuts grace the hotel lobby – each with an eagle motif that reflects the vicissitudes of German history. The corridors on the first and second floors feature etchings from the 1974 series Trees. Along with artworks, the hotel is also exhibiting catalogues and books devoted to Baselitz, giving guests the opportunity to learn about the artist, his works and his philosophy. In addition, the hotel offers an arts tour of the premises, which subtly echo Baselitz in their design and colour scheme. The Upside Down restaurant, for its part, recalls Baselitz’s best-known theme – the world literally turned upside-down.
