BUNKER KUMMERSTRASSE | 2K to HD | 05mins | 2018
More than twenty-five over-ground bunkers can be found in my hometown Duisburg in Germany. These remaining concrete structures are an imposing reminder of an atrocious past. For decades they have been repurposed; some into flats, some occupied by musicians and artists, and some as accommodation for the elderly.
Bunker Kummerstrasse in an abstract re-enactment of recurring traumatic memories and images. Filmed in the bunker on Kummerstrasse, the last one built by the Nazis in 1943, we move through floors and layers [re]visiting sites of intensity.
