Risk of Explosion!
The attack on the Amsterdam Registry Office
The exhibition is on display at the Resistance Museum in Amsterdam till January 6th 2019. It focuses on the social-psychological aspects of this spectacular act, which took place 75 years ago (on Saturday, March 27, 1943). The visitors can sympathise with the considerations and discussions of the six artists and gain insight into their backgrounds, motives, how they proceeded and what ultimately went wrong.
The exhibition consists of 12 rooms that you have to visit one by one. Because of the 3D audio tour and the beautiful illustrations and animations on walls and ceilings you have the feeling that you are in the story. Gradually there is no way back and you experience the same dilemmas as the attackers. You can decide on these dilemmas through an interactive component in the exhibition.
The privacy theme is also discussed. In 1943 we apparently did have something to hide. How do we think about that now and what needs to be done to erase your data nowadays?
Eric Corton together with Sebastiaan Labrie tell the story in 3D audio.
Rob Worst is responsible for the illustrations.
