the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight

As Colossal reports, Banksy and some of his artist friends are opening guest accommodations in a reclaimed hostel they’ve just refurbished adjacent to the concrete barrier that divides Israeli and Palestinian Bethlehem.  Fully-functional, the establishment will be open to guests soon—with the Walled Off Hotel (a bigger gallery and booking features here) promising the worst views in the world.
Since dismantling Dismaland in 2015, aside from expressing his honour to a grade school for naming its new wing after local son, it seems that this hotel has been his exclusive focus and is sure to make a statement that scales the divide.
