Noord was an international art project concerning Amsterdam-Noord. This peripheral borough serves as a pars pro toto for The Netherlands. It is conflicting and heterogeneous, but at the same time has a strong sense of solidarity and camaraderie. It is also one of the most undiscovered, and therefore exciting locations of The Netherlands. Together with local and international artists, Mediamatic mapped Noord in the summer of 2010. This resulted in an exhibition, and in the first Arabic travel guide to The Netherlands.
