“With its 180 nationalities, Amsterdam is now a reflection of its past.”
Russell Shorto, historian and writer
This year, 180 Amsterdam locals (so-called ‘Amsterdammers’) of 180 different nationalities were photographed and filmed. Now it is time for the 180 Amsterdammers exhibition, which focuses on their life stories. In this special exhibition,
Amsterdammers from different countries tell us about life in the city, and at the same time revisit memories from their country of birth.
The exhibition also highlights Amsterdammers from the past, who, each in their own way, have left their marks. Who knew that Tuschinski theatre has a Polish origin and that Maria Montessori lived in Amsterdam? That both Ramses Shaffy and Harry Mulisch were children of immigrants?
