For THE LAST NEWS- A Doomsday Scenario (DIE LETZTEN NACHRICHTEN- ein Untergangsszenario) Room 24 of Hotel Nizza was turned into a scenery of neglect and despair. A woman is sleeping in bed. The newsreader on the TV -Screen announces the end of the world. On the walls pictures of humans, animals, man-made things and nature. The woman wakes up, not really paying any attention to THE LAST NEWS.
English music band Necessary Animals wrote and composed the theme song THE LAST NEWS of the exhibition, which was sung live by the singer Alexandra Samouilidou on the opening night.
There is a vinyl 7” inch single of THE LAST NEWS available for purchase with vocals by Amanda Thompson.
TO PURCHASE, please email to: email@example.com.
Also on the opening night actress and singer Ingvild Syntropia, who also starres in the THE LAST NEWS as the weatherwoman, was performing dark, apocalyptic Viking folk songs in the neo-classical bathroom of Hotel Nizza.
After the opening the exhibition could only be attended by an overnight stay in ROOM 24.
