Sophie Calle on Hotel Rooms

“It was like a portrait of the room with different people using that room day after day.” In this video for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, artist and writer Sophie Calle speaks about her time working as a hotel maid and documenting her observations of guests for her book The Hotel (Siglio Press, 2021). Calle’s project is featured in “The Written Image: The Hotel” in the November/December issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
