HIPSTER/MUSLIM

Rotterdam-West / Rotterdam (2018) - video (english sub)

Introduction

Set against the background of emerging political populism, growing xenophobia and increasing polarization, the HIPSTER/MUSLIM project is more relevant than ever. More and more, people talk about how ‘the Netherlands should be given back to the Dutch’ and that ‘we should return to our own norms and values’. But in cities with a majority of minorities, the question is: what exactly are these norms and values and to whom do they belong? It is about time that we step out of our isolated bubbles and listen to what the new generation has to say. This time: Rotterdam-West as our scenery.
