We are very pleased to be able to offer 5 BunkerLove events in collaboration with a wide range of partners:
On Saturday 21 June on the OM:FORM Cultural Ferry there will be a workshop with military boots – Walk the Mile – by Inge Tranter as well as an exhibition of Chris Brock’s portrait series, “Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark”, from the 2013 BunkerLove festival. The exhibition is staged in collaboration with a major North Denmark regional land art initiative LAND SHAPE, in connection with the Aalborg Regatta (16-22 June). Come and join us in making footprints in the sand. Marie Bjerg will be there as a voluntary assistant at the festival.
Tuesday 24 June there will be a BunkerLove opening at the Museum Center Hanstholm where Chris Brock’s portraits from BunkerLove 2013 will be on show until 31 July. At the opening, which starts at 16.00, there will be free entry to the museum and we will continue to work on Inge Tranter’s military boot installation, “Walk the Mile”, which will be a part of the ongoing festival series. We will also be showing “Ein Stern” and “A Mare” by Marcelo Felix, and dramatist Marie Vibe will hold a bonfire speech without a bonfire, to celebrate Midsummer Nights Eve.
The exhibition is a collaboration with the Museum Center Hanstholm – and is a replacement for the planned Diaspora festival, which we were planning to hold on 20 July, but were unfortunately forced to cancel. We are, however, very pleased with the programs that have materialised for the festivals in Hirtshals and Furreby and that KulturKanten and Hjørring municipality are supporting the activities there.

Hirtshals 6 July – RAINBOW BunkerLove Festival
Furreby 13 July – FREE BunkerLove Festival
In mid-August BunkerLove will also be coming to Copenhagen in the Dome of Visions with the title “Together in Small Spaces”. Aga P. Mlynczak will be curating a BunkerLove exhibition there.
We hope that you enjoy the activities and we look forward to hearing from you.
We also attach the minutes of our AGM in March here (Danish) and apologise for the delay in getting them out to everyone. We are also sorry about a mess with our BunkerLove emails, we have dropped them in favour of individual email addresses now. Our Articles of Association and the contact details of the members of the board are on the website and we will be updating a list of press contacts.
We have flyers and posters on the way, which Mikolaj Lewandowski and Viola Heyn-Johnsen have been responsible for. The image on the poster is from the series “Rainbow People”, a collaboration between Michael Richardt Petersen and Chris Brock. We look forward to sharing them with you.
