NOTE:

The exhibition ‘Firemen walk with us’ confronts the risk-adverse behavior that currently characterizes our society. When it comes to the temporary use of vacant buildings, fire safety is one of the major obstacles to be overcome. After sunset visitors are invited to discover the dark Eiffel building in Maastricht. By creating a landscape of fire in this deserted architectural icon, Maastricht’s Fire Department and RAAAF show that the thousands of vacant properties offer far more possibilities for use than one would expect.
