THE MUSHROOM CLUB
For years, it was the best kept secret in the netherlands – the mushroom club – a former nato headquarters inside a mountain on the dutch-belgian border during the cold war. This underground network of tunnels is now physically stripped and officially erased on paper. What is left is an empty cave, objects taken out of their original context and the often inconsistent stories told by former employees. This project is an attempt to dig up information in order to reconstruct an image of the headquarters.
