A room in the Arte Luise Kunst Hotel in former East Berlin. When the Wall came down the dilapidated building was turned into a pension for artists looking for cheap accommodation in the East. During the 90s, after much restoration, it became a hotel with each room designed by different artists, who no longer live there but who receive a percentage of the revenue from their rooms. It is now marketed as "an art gallery you can spend the night in." This room, by artist Nathalie Doust, is entitled "Cabaret" to transport the guests "back to the time of Christopher Isherwood and the 1920s".
