Mediamatic has invited 22 Egyptian, Middle–Eastern and Dutch artists and designers to explore Amsterdam-Noord. They will map the borough's visible and invisible locations, people and data flows, and research its history and future. Their work will result in an exhibition, and will give rise to the first Arabic travel guide to The Netherlands.
