For The Understanding of Nonsense, Beckers filled the exhibition space of the Beursschouwburg with a variety of huts on stilts, dwellings built on poles. In them, he presented sculptures, films and performances. The shelters each housed a different aspect of Beckers' multifaceted, multidisciplinary work. 
By constructing these spaces, Feiko Beckers attempted to mimic real ‘white cubes’, but thanks to their awkward accessibility and cramped measurements, the houses on stilts acted more like pastiches of exhibition spaces. In this way, the artificiality of the surrounding context and the objects (an artificiality that he often creates in his work) extends to the location in which they were presented.
