MTB [Military Training Base]

Alma Enterprises is proud to present MTB [Military Training Base] a solo show by artist Suzanne Treister. MTB will transform Alma Enterprises into a temporary showroom presenting designs and ideas for a hypothetical military training base of the future.

MTBs generally house military equipment and personnel, and are the sites of training and operations. Bases are usually extra-legal jurisdictions not subject to civil law. They can range from small outposts to military cities and may belong to a different nation or state than the surrounding territory.

The project closely adheres to Alma's new manifesto and Treister will spend a month as resident at Alma Enterprises creating MTB as a vast diagrammatic drawing that will entirely cover the back and side walls of the gallery space. In the installation there will also be three video training demos.

MTB draws in part on the methodology of the role-playing simulated architectural/landscaped war zone as a military training ground, eg. The Mojave Viper Training Program located in the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, CA, USA.

MTB also references the idealistic theories and proposals for non-lethal warfare of Jim Channon and the 'First Earth Battalion'. Channon's book of the same name was self-published in 1979 in California.

MTB draws together a web of histories and projections for the future, suggesting hypothetical scenarios for alternative military training.
