World music: Omran

Members of the Amran group from southern Algeria are Tuareg. Berbers who were living a nomadic life. Just like the Tinariwen group before, Imarhan combines Tuareg folk music with influences from the West. The result is also known as the desert gloom.

Transformation: SuperWest

Not so long ago, Kolenkitbuurt was still known as the worst neighborhood in the Netherlands. But since 2000, significant investment has been made in western garden cities and the quality of life has improved dramatically. Part of the transformation was the construction of more than 25,000 new homes. An exhibition and publication by Tooth publishers provides insight into what has changed in this part of town over the past 20 years and what is yet to come. Similar to the urban renewal process, new neighborhoods and projects are constantly added to the presentation, so every four or five weeks the gallery looks different.
