Wapke and Jap Sam Books just launched a crowd-funder to finance a new book on THE RURAL SIDE.

BOERENZIJ is a project on rural migration and a redrawing of the imagination of urban culture and its relationship with land-use and cultural heritage. It continues Wapke's work in her local South Rotterdam neighbourhood, where together with more than 150 Rotterdammers, they started to dig up the rural history of the place, which came together in an exhibition at TENT in Rotterdam earlier in 2020.
