Joseph-Lester, Jaspar, 2013, Book, Revisiting the Bonaventure Hotel The Common Intellectual (3). Copy Press, London. ISBN 9780955379253
|Abstract or Description:||
Revisiting the Bonaventure Hotel developed from an established body of research that focused on the influence of the media image on urban space. In this publication, a series of video stills (taken from the many films made using the Bonaventure as a backdrop), were contrasted with photographs taken while retracing Fredric Jameson’s seminal account of the hotel. Moving between visual and theoretical references from architectural theory, cinema, cultural theory and philosophy, the book considered how shared social space is experienced as a scripted journey through filmic narratives and embodied architectural affect. The site of the hotel is re-visited through conflicting spatial narratives that, through the form of the photo essay, are represented as an encounter with forceful ideological constructs.
