The Subjective Atlas of Amsterdam
Discover the diversity of Amsterdam in 80 maps! In the Subjective Atlas of Amsterdam, Amsterdammers who are not automatically heard or seen tell how they experience their city. The displayed maps and videos show a city that is not always accessible, affordable or safe. This creates a polyphonic image of Amsterdam.

The city is literally impassable for Eric Groot Kormelink, who tries to get from his home to work in his electric wheelchair.
Mahmoud's map shows that many places are not accessible to Amsterdammers without a residence permit or money. Teferi emphasizes the importance of public water dispensers in the city, because accessible drinking water is not available to everyone. The maps by Janfrans van Eerden and vreer show that safety is not always self-evident for the LGBTIQ+ community.
And what do the people of Amsterdam notice? Ravi Blits collects and reuses the electronic waste in the city. Anna Torres marvels at the developments in the Red Light District and Alexandra Rouppe van der Voort focuses on the developments in her own garden.
Arcam hopes that this Atlas contributes to a city that really is for everyone.
