Recall Air-Shelter

Many air-raid shelters from WWII still exist, scattered across Europe. However they are disappearing rapidly, reappropriated, forgotten, and demolished. Recall Air Shelter aims to preserve this unique heritage by creating an interactive research network, powered by public involvement. The catalyst for the project is the Anti-raid shelter on Giudecca Island, Venice. Build to protect factory workers and their children, it now lies derelict on the edge of a modern housing complex. In floating Venice shelters had to be necessary above ground, requiring a particular design and construction, often made in a hurry and with very poor materials. The urban center of Venice was however, never actually bombed, but the presence of these structures remind people of this turbulent time in venician history. With your help, Recall Air-Shelter will build a register of the sites of WW2 airraid shelters across Europe creating a useful research facility on the cultural landscapes of WWII, preserving this fragile heritage and generating a new culture awareness. This is a dynamic research process where we ask you to visit any air-raid shelter that you may know of, perhaps on your own, or preferably in a group and perform a sound installation which you video record using your phone and send to us. Go to the App link and download the characteristic soundtracks. Take this with you to the site, create your own evocative sound event and by uploading onto the Blog you can share it with the world!

The Materiality of Anti Raid Shelters

By Arve Nytun Every object or structure made by man is a part of our material culture. These objects or structures provide important information for out understanding of technologies, economies, ritual practices and social organization of human past. This is not only the case for ancient history, but also for our recent historical remains, like material culture from World War 2. This material culture provides us with information about the resources used in the building process and the relationship between material culture and human behaviour. Venice was never actually bombed, but the anti raid shelters was still an important element of security for the citizens in case of a attack. They were built by poor concrete made of smal stones, bricks and wood. Another aspect which is special for Venice is that the shelters are build above ground. This makes the fue of them which we have left visible in the landscape. The Air Raid Shelters in Venice (and in other parts of Europe) can give us useful information and evoke memories on subjects already forgotten, as this information and knowledge disappears every day. The contrast between the classical architecture in Venice and the remains from these military constructions is overwhelming. Being aware of these historical remains we are also able to communicate and reflecting about an important part of human history.

Being aware of these historical remains we are also able to communicate and reflecting about an important part of human history. Our goal is to gain attention to theses buildings so that they can be re-discovered and hopefully reflected on, not just as old irrelevant buildings falling apart, but as memory of a turbulent and difficult time in European history.

Giudecca, Venice Campo Junghans

Built in 1941 L-shaped, 36 x 22 x 5 metres long 3 metres high Built for the Junghans’ fuse factory workers and their families Never used

The air-raid shelter in Campo Junghans, Giudecca Island, Venice was built in 1941 as part of the National defense of “threat from the air”. There was a National Union for Anti-aircraft Protection (UNPA) from the 1930’s with laws and regulations on air-raid shelters provided detailed descriptions of how they had to be built, the materials to be used, and on the safety equipment that was required inside them. However it was not until December 1940 when the German Ministry of War issued Regulations on shelters that many of these shelters began to be built. Therefore the campo Junghans shelter was one of the first to be built under the German occupation.
