The Naval Base (2021)

The Naval Base is a town built, bombed and rebuilt by the government. When the government invests in the navy, the city flourishes. When the government withdraws, the city fades away. There are many more like this naval town in Europe: cities or regions that are excessively dependent on the attention of the national government. A city where the population is unilaterally composed according to the demand of the largest employer.

“Some say the naval base is the end of the world. They are wrong. This is where Europe begins.”
— Chairman of carnival association de Krabbetukkers
