'Boeddha in de Linie': A friendly experiment in March and April 2014, where buddhism, contemporary artists, military history and nature meet. Four artists, Leen Kaldenberg, Airco Caravan, Raoul Deleo and Mark Schalken stayed for two weeks each in Fort Werk aan het Spoel near Culemborg, Netherlands, to explore a self-chosen isolation to see what happens. The results were on display in May 2014, Kunstfort Asperen, Acquoy, and shown in a documentary.
