Joachim Bandau - Drawings and Wall Objects

In terms of their form, Joachim Bandau’s bunker drawings are both surprising and fascinating. Conceived as a „survival machine“, as both foxhole and firing range, the bunker in Bandau’s drawings is more than a prototype of instrumental architecture. It appears as a contradictory hybrid, archaic and yet modern. In reality a kind of fortification, Bandau’s bunkers are like sculptures with strange anthropomorphic features.
