Backstay Hostel, Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 128, 9000 Gent (BE)
Lola Lasurt Bachs, Marge Monko
HOTEL FORWARD is a presentation of a research conducted during our 3-day stay in Backstay hostel. The building on Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat used to facilitate the socialist newspaper Vooruit and the printing house Het Licht and was designed by Fernand Brunfaut in 1930. Since the building is serving as a hostel starting from 2014, we're interested in exploring the heritage and its new functions.
The research made during these days is a starting point for what we hope to be a more extensive project in the future. Therefore no final works but rather preliminary visualisations of our ideas - sketches, texts and drawings - will be presented to the audience in the hostel lobby during the last day of our stay.
