Corona in the City is a living, growing exhibition as well as an audio platform. Anyone can contribute – from moving stories of remote visits to atmospheric pictures of the empty city, and from the emotionally charged reports from the key sectors to creative images of life in quarantine. Every week, a team of guest curators and museum employees will put a selection of the many contributions into perspective in digital ‘rooms’.
The first rooms are dedicated to themes like Dam Square, The Silent City, New Behavior, and Life in Isolation. Additionally, some of the participating partner organizations are showing the stories and images that they have collected over the past few months. New rooms are added every Thursday afternoon, which will be presented during the online Corona in the City Live public program.You can also discover the entire collection. This is because every contribution is added to the digital collection of the Amsterdam Museum. The result is that they form part of the story of our city. This will be the collective memory that we record together and retain for the future.
And new contributions are still welcome… To show the consequences of the coronavirus crisis for all the people of Amsterdam and the new developments in a social distancing society, we are particularly keen to receive contributions relating to healthcare, children, religion, and life under the new rules. If you have something you would like to contribute, please do so here. Is there anything specific you would like to see, or do you have ideas for a new room? Please let us know! Have fun, and take care of yourself and each other!
What are we looking for?
Everything is welcome. But to get a picture of the consequences of the corona crisis on all Amsterdammers, we are looking for more contributions about care, children, religion, living with new rules.
