Tropenmuseum: My Ritual

For an exhibition at The Tropenmuseum I made five intimate audio-portraits about rituals. The exhibition 'My Ritual' shows the rituals of people from the community in the Eastern part of Amsterdam. It is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Amsterdam. 

My Role:

Creative director, producer and editor of the podcasts. 

The Tropenmuseum

The Tropenmuseum is located in Amsterdam East, historically one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Amsterdam. This neighborhood is a mosaic of different geographies, biographies and narratives and simultaneously it is rapidly changing due to hyper gentrification in the city.


Practicing Neighborhood Rituals proposes a long term liaison with different stakeholders in the neighborhood by connecting the minor histories and narratives of the neighbors to the collection of the museum. 

A program including an exhibition in the neighborhoods, podcasts, community meetings.
