refusal

The Bijlmer and the creation of the Bijlmer are important in Amsterdam. How is and was the Bijlmer important for Amsterdam and its citizens? With this video exhibition we aim to highlight the agency, refusal and resistance in the Bijlmer over the past 50 years.

The Reparative Acts Lab explores the possibilities and impossibilities for ethnographic museums contributing to the repair and redress of historical wounds.

The Bijlmer celebrates her 50th anniversary this year and therefore we would like to highlight the agency there has been and still is in this neighborhood. On Tuesday 27 March, we kick-off with the first meeting of a year-long series in which we celebrate and remember the Bijlmer of the past 50 years.
