This publication was made possible with the support of the Mondriaan Stichting, Fonds 1818, Stroom Den Haag, Municipality of The Hague/OCW.

The artist organisation, Mobiel Projectbureau OpTrek, an initiative of Sabrina Lindemann and Annechien Meier, has been studying the drastic restructuring scheme that will continue to grip the multi-ethnic district Transvaal in The Hague until 2014. This operation involves the demolition of some three thousand dwellings, to make way for 1,600 new homes, most of them in a higher price class. OpTrek invited artists to study these changes and to make them visible for a wider audience, as well as to explore the underlying political policies. In this publication an overview of art projects, interviews, debates, interventions and research between 2002-2009 is presented.
