During BimBamBoehmerBoem!, Stichting 7090 takes the legacy of composer and music critic Konrad Boehmer in hand, lifts it out of its context and gives it a new place in the twenty-first century.
From Tuesday 6 to Saturday 10 September 2022, music will blare through the corridors, texts will drip from the walls and art and kitsch from Konrad Boehmer’s private collection will fill the rooms of Pampus.
On Sunday 11 September, 7090 will close with four explosive performances.
