From connecting indigenous communities in the Amazon rainforest with museum collections to helping migrants build a sense of home, diasporic objects that have migrated from one context to another bear witness to and mediate the ruptures, reforged connections, and cultural negotiations between human groups.  

A neighborhood project consisting of an art route with works around the theme of the stranger. Artist Jabu Arnell will create a new work in response to the museum’s collection, which will be on show for three days in the Glutenvrije Winkel (Pretoriusstraat 37) in Amsterdam East. The Stranger Next Door invites artists, neighbors and students to respond to the concept of the stranger within the context of the city.
