Sinopale 3, “Hidden Memories, Lost Traces”

HOTEL NOKUL, a home away from home Named after the typical Sinopian pastry, Hotel Nokul is a free hotel made from the former bus of the notorious ex-prison, where many writers and intellectuals were held as political prisoners. Both haven and mnemonic device, the hotel welcomes locals and foreigners to rest comfortably while contemplating the harsh historical memory of the place through evocative photographs. Constructed in situ with found local materials and objects, the vehicle will hopefully serve as a community meeting place, where visitors can discuss new relationships and ideas. It is free of charge and open to everyone.
