z\w\a\r\t\24: a long project of Z\W\A\R\T magazine in this building:
“The abandoned building KKN24 is located on Buitenplaats Koningsweg a former military base in Arnhem, The Netherlands.
The building was a sleeping-quarter for soldiers, 4 in one room. 39 Rooms in the whole building. The building is waiting to be demolished, meanwhile it transforms back to nature. In october 2014 artist BiOP got permission to use the building for site-specific artworks. He invites several artists to transmute the building and their artwork, 24hours a day. [ ]
During the ‘Code Rood’ event (’Code Red’) the art and the building can be visited (every last saturday).”
