Pakhuis de Zwijger is a unique cultural organisation which opened its doors in 2006 and has grown to be an independent platform for and by the city of Amsterdam and its inhabitants. The role of a city in the omnipresent transition to a sustainable society is complex. The creative and innovative approach to these issues has become Pakhuis de Zwijger’s trademark. Under the name of New Amsterdam – City in Transition Pakhuis de Zwijger organises events on the urgent and complex urban challenges of today.

In Bolivia the miners believe in El Tio, a devil who rules the underworld of the mine shafts. According to the legend of El Tio, minerals will disappear from the mines if women enter them. Yet more and more women are forced to work in the mines due to financial hardship.  Dutch photojournalist Eline van Nes has chosen to portray these women in her exhibition.
