The Naval Base is a new chapter of The Europeans. The Europeans is a portrait of modern Europe. Traveling from region to region and from theme to theme in this multi-year project, photographer Rob Hornstra and writer and filmmaker Arnold van Bruggen will create a 21st century time piece on the European Heartland. In the coming years the makers will visit countless seemingly insigni­ficant places and surrounding regions. Places that rarely make the news. In every region they will collaborate with local partners in the media and cultural world and conclude with a local exhibition including the launch of a separate publication. All these regions and publications combined will in the long run be the inspiration for our final book and exhibition cycle — a time piece of Europe in the 21st century.

There are more cities in Europe like this naval base, which are excessively dependent on the attention of the national government. A city where entire neighbourhoods are built and the population is unilaterally composed according to the demand of the largest employer. Outsiders see little in the town, but the inhabitants love their Naval Base and never want to leave.

"Some say the naval base is the end of the world. They are wrong. This is where Europe begins. This is where the railways begin, this is where the roads begin. We never want to leave." -- President of the Carnival Association Krabbetukkers
