Olaf Hajek - 25hr Hotel
Each room at the 25hr Hotel Vienna has been decorated with a piece of artwork by Olaf Hajek. The hotel describes the atmosphere as follows:
'Whether museum district or Prater, Opera, Life Ball, or one of the countless music and theater stages, for the visitors to the cosmopolitan city, Vienna has always stood for sensationalism and show, for seeing and being seen. As symbol for the spectacle, the 25hours Hotel at Museums Quartier has taken from the traditions of the circus institution. It is a place of surreal, surprising and sexy allure, where the fantastic and exotic delight. Always on the move – like the hotel guest – the temporary character is present, with real artisanship and art. Improvisation, seeming juxtapositions and eclecticism are felt in the 25hours Hotel Vienna. Sawdust meets heavy velvet curtains, raw concrete meets fluffy carpet.'
