Max's story invites us to step outside our comfort zone, reevaluate our definitions of 'normal' and discover the beauty that lies on the margins of societal norms. I am attracted to Max and the place where he lives. Is this freedom or flight? Why do I keep wanting to go back?

City nomads have a long history within the city of Amsterdam. The first documented location of part of the City Nomads is on Waterlooplein. The construction site of the Stopera was squatted by a few people and inhabited in tents. The composition of the group became more stable over time. The group visited various locations in Amsterdam. They could stay in any place for 2 up to 3 years, tolerated and facilitated by the Municipality of Amsterdam. Places were later given other destinations. The group traveled on, via the north district, to Southeast, to New West. The location increasingly shifted from the center to the outer edges of the city. Since April 2022, they have been located at the second location on Westpoortweg.

The urban nomads live in areas with an area of approximately 4,700 square meters, where there are 35 to 40 places for permanent residents. Due to high decibels on the speakers, a large distance to homes is chosen. Minimal facilities are available on location: water, sanitary facilities and a (limited) power supply. The residents receive outreach assistance from field workers and are guided by the municipality.
