From North to South

A film-concept by Lisa Boerstra and Interakt about the North/South line in Amsterdam.

The metro in Amsterdam will go into its final stage over the next few years. Established artists are designing massive pieces as designs for the stations. The film follows the break-down of the metro and the build-up of the art-works. The tension between autonomous artists and official regulations cause breakpoints through which the almost forgotten subsidence, resigned aldermen, deaths, and wasted millions can reappear. The artworks at the stations are a measure for Boerstra to depict the stories both over-ground as well as under-ground.
