A marriage between city and port


The new exhibition will show the age-old love-hate relationship between Amsterdam and its port. It is a story about giving and taking, just like in a marriage. Barend (creative partner at Studio Louter): “They can’t live without each other, they love each other and they suffer from each other. That will be a common thread in the exhibition.”


‘The port company and the museum want to show that the port and the city have been in each other’s waters for centuries.’ Bart van Zoelen, Parool,
