Werkplaats Molenwijk is Framer Framed’s new, second project space and artist-in-residency in Amsterdam-Noord, for and by residents interested in arts, culture, heritage and society. Over the past six weeks our first artist-in-resident, Florian Braakman, worked alongside and with Molenwijk inhabitants to create an exhibition in light of the 50 year anniversary of the neighbourhood.
The exhibition portrays ’50 Years of Molenwijk’ through a combination of existing material and new images. Residents were invited to contribute ideas, memories of the neighborhood, and images from their personal archives. Florian Braakman captured the area through photography, photographing people in the streets and in their own homes. Young residents were involved in the project via photography workshops: armed with a disposable camera, they took to the streets and framed Molenwijk through their own lens.
The resulting exhibition & publication combines all the above elements, presenting a unique image of 50 Years Molenwijk, past and present - Framer Framed, Amsterdam 2018
