    Collecting the City #3: Women of the city

    Collecting the City is an exhibition series in which the Amsterdam Museum, in collaboration with various communities and organizations, “collects” and presents the vibrant city of Amsterdam. Each edition consists of a few mini-expos that together form a single exhibition.

    In this third edition we offer Women of the city, a small presentation about women in Amsterdam.

    Underexposed stories

    Even now, the narratives of women in Amsterdam remain underexposed. Male makers and their stories comprise more than 90% of museum collections and archives. At the Amsterdam Museum, 9% of objects included the collection were created by women—a significant and troubling finding that we are seeking to change through the “Women of” projects.

    Through a co-creative process, we gather stories from women in Nieuw-West, Noord, and Zuidoost. In this tiny exhibition (just one room), examples of neighborhood exhibitions, activities, and gatherings can be seen.

    Collecting the City #3

    Until 2025, this is where the Amsterdam Museum will “collect” and present our vibrant city, in collaboration with various parties and groups in the city. During this period, neighborhood museums, community networks, local artists, and passionate residents will share objects and stories about Amsterdam. Every half year, new contributors are invited to showcase their ideas—whether it’s a fresh perspective on the past, a beautiful or painful moment in the present, or a new vision of the city for the future. The Museum om de Hoek foundation, comprising 23 local museums throughout Amsterdam, is a permanent partner in this endeavor. They have a total of three rooms at their disposal.

    The other small exhibitions of Collecting the City #3:

    • Gay Games 1998
    • Toko Mokum
    • Operation Living
