A serie of ten collages and an exhibition of the same name (2014, Amsterdam’s City Hall) showing an Amsterdam without her landmarks.
Amsterdam Landmarks presents a different version of the city: an Amsterdam that feels simultaneously familiar and foreign.
In the photo collages, iconic buildings have been meticulously wiped off the map.
Through these images, viewers are encouraged to reevaluate their surroundings and reflect on Amsterdam’s spatial planning and identity.
Erasing several buildings in the rather small city creates a fair amount of space. But what is a city without monuments? Aren’t De Waag and the Concertgebouw part of Amsterdam’s identity? And despite Dam Square’s crowdedness, don’t we prefer to see the Royal Palace as we cycle through the plaza?
Order the collages as a set of A5 postcards here.
