FOB Dahlke exhibition by Allison Dinner

1 December 2019 - 11 January 2020

Allison Dinner – FOB Dahlke

BPPA member Allison Dinner’s project FOB Dahlke will be on exhibit in the Mayor’s Neighborhood Gallery, on the 2nd floor, at Boston City Hall. The exhibit will run from December 1, 2019 through January 10, 2020. FOB Dahlke is a story about an austere US Aviation Base called Forward Operating Base Dahlke that was opened in Afghanistan in 2018 by the US Army. The US Army opened this base as a remote location to conduct more air operations against the Taliban after Trump’s change in US involvement in the Afghanistan combat policy. All air missions, including medevac, combat, and resupply, are conducted daily from this base. Allison’s project features an in depth look at the 101st Airborne soldiers that were some of the first to be stationed at this base, and helped build it from the ground up. Boston City Hall is located at 1 City Hall Sq. in downtown Boston.

City Hall hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
