The Architecture of
Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath


For its current cycle of projects BNKR – current reflections on art and architecture has extended its collaboration with acclaimed curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of artReoriented to curate a series of exhibitions and public programs.

Conceived as an exhibition trilogy under the title The Architecture of, the 2020/2021 program comprises three consecutive exhibitions, each exploring the fault lines between art and architecture. Taking its departure point from the building that houses BNKR itself, it responds to the changes in architectural appearance and appropriation since its construction as a WWII bunker until its current function as a residential space. With a diverse range of artworks and site-specific commissions The Architecture of is intended as a spatial experience that encourages the viewer to critically reflect on the complex relationship between the physical and psychological dimensions of our lived realities.

The program trilogy consists of the following exhibitions:

Part 1
The Architecture of Deception
(Until April 25, 2021)
Explores notions of illusion and deception, the creation of new realities, truth versus fiction.

Part 2
The Architecture of Confinement
(June – September 2021)
Explores notions of shelters and safety, captivity and freedom, ‘outside’ versus ‘inside’.

Part 3
The Architecture of Transformation
(November – February 2022)
Explores notions of gentrification, decay and definition of living spaces.
