In 2011, the two artists Edo und Sandra Hozic succeeded in launching the Project Biennial D-0 ARK Underground, which combines the format of a biennale with the idea of establishing a public collection and museum for contemporary art in Sarajevo by using a quite extraordinary place: “Tito’s Bunker” in Konjic. This museum shall be established after the Project Biennial’s 5th edition in 2019 as a place where contemporary art and military history will meet, though likely not without friction.

Instead of inviting a great number of artists, curators Hans D. Christ, Iris Dressler decided to concentrate on six new works. They will basically deal with—directly or at a meta-level—aspects of the building’s transition from a long-term working place during its construction to an obsolete bunker to a museum of contemporary art and military history.
