With 120 rooms spread over 5 floors, the bunker holds approximately 3,000m² of exhibition space, and temporary exhibitions are planned in close cooperation with with artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Elmgreen and Dragset, Robert Kusmirowski, Sarah Lucas, and Tobias Rehberger. A 500m² penthouse extension at roof level provides living space for the art collector and his family.
The Atlantic Wall, an extensive system of coastal fortifications, was built between 1942 and 1944 by the German Third Reich, to defend against an anticipated Allied invasion of mainland Europe. Stretching over 5,000km along the western coast of Europe, it runs from the top of Norway down to the top of Spain, and consists of many different types of concrete fortifications, from ammunition bunkers, to gun emplacements, to supply depots and submarine stations. Over the years, we have visited all of the sites along the entire length of the Atlantic Wall, and one of the highest concentrations of fortifications can be found at Hanstholm, on the west coast of Denmark.
