The publication "The Architecture of Deception / Confinement / Transformation" accompanies the eponymously titled exhibition trilogy at BNKR - current reflections on art and architecture in Munich and showcases eighteen diverse artistic standpoints at the intersection of art and architecture. Each chapter directly correspond to the evolving history of the exhibition space, which was originally constructed as a camouflage air-raid bunker during the Second World War, then used as a postwar internment camp, and finally transformed into its current state as a mixed-use residential and office building. With contributions by the editors, David Adjaye and Nikolaus Hirsch, and Madeleine Freund.
