Tangier is a state of mind…
It perches on the top tip of Africa, its soul in the Maghreb, its eyes set on Europe, for centuries a cultural crossroads. Four photographers encounter differing facets of an ever-moving city, capturing moments in the Medina, the seaside forests, in stark new suburbs. They tell the story of a city steeped in the past, tossed by change, and reaching uncertainly for the future, but most of all of a city that somehow, in a way you can never quite define, gets a hold of you.
This travelling exhibition, a publication, and a public and educational programme come out of an idea conceived by the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra – a creative platform that draws on the rich musical heritage of Al-Andalus, intertwining it with modern strands.
We are currently conducting an extensive research on the hinterland of Tangier, which will be published in the summer of 2021.

The exhibition was on view at No Man’s Art Gallery, Amsterdam (February – April 2020) and Mahal Art Space, Tangier (February 2021). In the summer of 2020, life-size photos were installed at the Mercatorplein and Plein ’40-’45.
During the running time of the exhibition, we organised an extensive public programme with concerts, talks and education programmes in both the Netherlands and Morocco with Foam, Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam and the École Nationale d’Architecture de Tétouan.
If you have a question about the publication or the (past) exhibition/public programmes, feel free to send us an e-mail. We will get back to you within a day.
