The picture below is an illustrious view of the border wall from one of the hotel rooms. Where else in the world could a tourist enjoy a gorgeous view such as this?
A handful of curious foreigners ate Victoria sponge cake and sipped tea beneath security cameras and slingshots in his Walled Off Hotel, however few seemed to appreciate they were playing starring roles in one of the more bizarre openings the art world has ever seen, and may see ever again. To pull off an exhibit of this magnitude in which the exhibit is an actual experience in which you can rent a hotel room took over a year of very careful planning.
This hotel, museum and slice of performance art has, after all, won global publicity with its unusual and archly sly boast of having the ‘worst view of any hotel in the world’. Several of its ten rooms look directly out at the forbidding wall that divides two warring communities.
One of my favorite room pictures in all honesty is a comfy looking bed with an original Banksy above the headboard. No where else on this planet can anyone rent a room that is even remotely as cool as this for any amount of money.
In all honesty this Art Exhibit by Banksy has definitely topped his 'Dismaland' Theme Park exhibit less than 2 years ago. It brings an enormous amount of attention to the obvious issues at the Israeli Palestine walled border and he uses his notoriety in the most positively subtle way.
In my world - Banksy remains the only true Art genius to have ever walked the earth.
