For this exhibition, Aëgerter investigated the many young German women who lived and worked during the Second World War at the airbase.
French artist Laurence Aëgerter (Marseille, 1972) made two new spatial installations based on her research. Part of the exhibition is a space-filling installation that transforms the former boiler room and creates a penetrating experience for the visitor. A large-format tapestry that responds to light was created using a complex and little-used weaving technique and was carried out in the Textiellab of Textielmuseum Tilburg.
Machinery of Me organizes a multidisciplinary public program for the exhibition in which history and current events come together.
