Old Walls – New Ideas

We are the »Bilker Bunker«: a non-profit cultural institution that promotes social cohesion through the means of art.

For this purpose, we have transformed the massive architecture of the historic building into a free space for creative expression, without forgetting its original intention.

What was intended as a civilian shelter becomes a protected space for experimental art and cultural formats.

NEW PERSPECTIVES IN OLD WALLS

EXHIBITION SPACES IN THE BILKER BUNKER

Changing contemporary art formats and experimental cultural programs are launched on two floors of the bunker. Here, disciplines, positions and cultural actors are linked with each other in innovative ways. A lively, open exchange can arise, which emotionalizes, opens spaces and releases thoughts.

Artistic positions, questions and answers form a dialogue with the architecture and history of the site, which is special in every respect.

FIKTION DER WIRKLICHKEIT

17.05.2024
– 14.07.2024

AUSSTELLUNG IM RAHMEN DER DÜSSELDORF PHOTO+ BIENNALE FOR VISUAL UND SONIC MEDIA

Fiktion der Wirklichkeit

MIT WERKEN VON JAN ALBERS, JULIUS VON BISMARCK UND SINTA WERNER

In der Ausstellung „Fiktion der Wirklichkeit“ lädt der »Bilker Bunker« dazu ein, eine Wanderung auf dem schmalen Grat zwischen Imaginärem und Realem zu unternehmen. Die künstlerischen Positionen von Jan Albers, Julius von Bismarck und Sinta Werner spielen mit unserer Wahrnehmung.

Es bedarf des Näherkommens, des Sich-Einlassens, um Schein von Sein zu unterscheiden und der Fiktion der Wirklichkeit auf die Spur zu kommen.

Wo endet die Fiktion und wo fängt die Wirklichkeit an?
