In Israel, constant danger is part of everyday life. All citizens of the state are therefore legally entitled to have access to a shelter at all times. Yet even the most extensive security system does not provide ultimate protection. This became apparent with the disastrous terrorist assault against Israeli civilians on October 7, 2023, when residents of numerous communities and visitors attending a music festival in the desert were killed in the deadly Hamas attacks. In her multimedia installation, Not Everyone Will Be Taken to a Bunker, Katja Pilipenko (*1989 in Moscow) merges the locations of the desert and the shelter. The artist conceived her project for the specific site of the center for transnational arts Hajusom e.V. in the Feldstraße Bunker. The former bomb shelter dating back to the Second World War provides the framework for exploring the themes of war and peace, enclosure and openness, security and threat, confinement and expansiveness, fortification and freedom.
