Molitor is a name that has been intrinsically linked to street art for more than three decades. The building closed in 1989 and was classed as a listed historic building; it was then occupied by artists who transformed the space into an immense art hub, which gradually became a mecca for the Parisian underground street and graffiti art scene.
When the hotel re-opened, a conscious decision was made to preserve and highlight this rich legacy. Each of the 78 cubicles surrounding the indoor pool, originally used as a place for swimmers to change in privacy, have been taken over by artists who have produced a diverse gallery of contemporary urban art, and it is these Art Cabins which are the focus of MOLITOR : VIBRATIONS ARTISTIQUES, edited by h'artpon.
