State of Siege Mural

State of Siege is a 40 metre gouache mural that decorates EDLAB’s building at the Tapijnkazerne. Navine G. Khan-Dossos, an artist at the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, used the building’s structure, history and context as a source of inspiration for this artwork.

Her imagination was especially sparked by the historical figure of General Dibbets, whose cenotaph is also located at Tapijn.
