Invitation produced on the occasion of On Property, International Institute of Social History, Ghislaine Leung, Remco Torenbosch at Cargo in Context, Amsterdam.
On Property is set against the backdrop of one of the most speculative construction sites in Amsterdam: de Houthavens. This former port area (also the location where Cargo is located) is exemplary of how urban expansion is used as a means for speculation of property, with all its socio-economic consequences. On Property focuses on the subcutaneous and invisible lines of the idea of ownership, a concept that forces separations from public and private and that produces an unequal distribution of collective values.
