Folio D: Hotel Theory Reader
Edited by Sohrab Mohebbi and Ruth Estévez

Hotel Theory Reader explores the possibilities of theory as an art form, bringing together ideas initially explored in an exhibition organized in 2015 at REDCAT | CalArts’ Downtown Center for Contemporary Arts. This publication takes its title from Wayne Koestenbaum’s 2007 book Hotel Theory (a philosophic enquiry into the hotel state of being).

Hotel Theory is not a theory of hotels, but a hotel named Theory, ie, a place where certainty falls apart, or where stupor gets an airing.
–Wayne Koestenbaum
