Geheime Bunker

2014-present
AIR curatorial project
In collaboration with Studio Omstand, Arnhem

Secret Bunker
De Geheime Bunker (The secret bunker) is a dismantled NATO bunker that contained four engines that boosted fuel (kerosine) to military airports. The object was part of a big network of kerosine pipelines that are out of use since the end of the cold war. The bunker has been abandoned ever since.

Curating an AIR
As curator, I use the Secret Bunker as a site for two lines of research: the artists perform their own research in situ, and as curator I do a parallel research on the production of art in the specific circumstances this bunker is challenging our residents with: artist work and stay on an isolated location in the woods, without electricity, sanitary and running water. They work without any preset or expected outcome and without any public visits to the site. These circumstances create a site that offers both freedom and limitations. I regard every residency as a new exploration and interpretation of the bunker, created by the artists working here.

The residents and information about the bunker can be found on www.geheime-bunker.nl.
