Het rode licht van woensel-west
Commissioned by Tante Netty
The oldest ‘job in the world’, a fixed part of the wild stories of the past in the neighbourhood Woensel-West in Eindhoven. The tiles shining from the red light, which became more and more drizzly…
The stories of the past are sensational. From almost romantic to criminal harsh. The neighbourhood has changed, but the job hasn’t. Will it ever change? And what do you think of that?
That’s the reason why we invited people for a walk through the red light of Eindhoven. We glanced back, and looked forward. Talked with local residents, law enforcement officers, people who are involved in the subject and each other. A journey to delineate and share the stories of the future.
