GUIDED TOUR
Heilbronner Straße Tunnel: one of Stuttgart’s first protective structures 
Guided tour through the Heilbronner Strasse Tunnel with Norbert Prothmann (research and study group Untertage e.V.) to accompany the exhibition Tito’s Bunker at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart.
Meeting point: Heilbronner Straße
Duration: 1 hour
Admission: p.P. 3 EUR

The starting point of the WKV exhibition is a remarkable site: Tito’s bunker in Konjic (Bosnia-Herzegovina), negotiated in equal measure as a concrete place and open-ended metaphor. In the WKV’s immediate neighbourhood, at the central railway station beneath Heilbronner Straße is one of Stutttgart’s first protective structures: a tunnel, of which only parts of the original tunnel still exist and are accessible, and which were already completed on 1 September 1939, before the outbreak of war.  Do the protective structures in the Stuttgart area show similarities or differences with Tito’s bunker in Konjic? If so, what are they?

When the Wind Blows 
Animated film by Jimmy T. Murakami
(after the graphic novel of the same name by Raymond Briggs)
GB 1986, duration: 80 Minuten
venue: WKV Glastrakt

Jim and Hilda are an amiable elderly couple leading a peaceful life behind evergreen hills. One day they learn from the radio that a nuclear attack is imminent. They believe they can master the situation with a door leaned against the wall and advice from a dubious brochure. They survive the attack, but have no chance for survival due to radiation. In the face of their desperate situation, their naiveté and hopefulness are deeply moving.
