CORONA TESTIMONIES is a multimedia series of narrative portraits of five residents in Amsterdam-West. They were interviewed by writer Warda El-Kaddouri and photographed by Vincent van Kleef. Their testimonies are voiced by five other residents of Amsterdam-West, while filmmaker Vanessa van Gasselt captures them on video. The readers then reflect on their neighbours’ stories from their own perspective. This space symbolises the powerful solidarity that exists in Amsterdam-West. Corona Testimonies is a series of narrative portraits curated by Margreet van der Vlies of Operatie Periscoop and commissioned by Stadsdeel Amsterdam-West.
