It’s all about bunkers, bombs & people...
In Kiel’s "Flandernbunker" is an art project that has the goal teaching history for peace promotion and international understanding.
Technically speaking: a former anti-aircraft bunker. The amazing two meter thick concrete walls give an idea and impression of war constructions.
There are year-round exhibitions in the “Flanders Bunker” related to First and Second World War, as well as to the period of National Socialism. Sometimes living contemporary witnesses tell about their experiences. In the end, references to the present shall be established.
Witnesses of wars, also contemporary witnesses, are giving in this art project their accounts under the slogan: "daring memories”. Their experiences during wars should bring the reality of that time closer and serve as a reminder to help avoid repetition.
Instead of letters I'm writing this blog
I'm the founder of “tomorrow’s old hat”, this photo-blog, which is a place of many ramblings about photojournalism. If you find something useful on here, it's probably an accident.
