Art by various artists can be seen in and around the bunkers on the fort. Just like in 2019, Karel van der Eijk and Catinka Kersten will be exhibiting again. We will see new work by Milena Anna Bouma, Bart Schalekamp, Quentley Barbara, Feiko Beckers and Rop van Mierlo. Every year, Tweetakt invites a performing artist to make a work of art for the Fort. In 2020 Louis Janssens and Ferre Marnef from Desnor will make an artwork, they are also at Tweetakt with their show Toverberg.

In addition to art, you can also enjoy theatre shows in the Trekkerschuur and music in the open air at Fort Ruigenhoek. The performances and shows to be presented at the Fort this year will be announced soon.
