Inactive: The Swamp
5 july 2013, industrial land squatted in Utrecht, previously used by Shell. Evicted on 2 november 2018. The Swamp became a space of living and sharing with people and nature, outside of consumption trends. In a city where the waiting list for expensive “social housing” is endless, we decided to build our own houses and work in a sustainable and self-sufficient way. In Kanaleneiland in particular, only a couple of years back social housing was sold to private corporations behind people’s backs.
