This project was conceived as the alternative to the official arts programme of 'Antwerpen93'. In various problem areas of the city artists were invited to work confrontationally and /or in collaboration with the local inhabitants. Photography was to be the central medium. Bert Danckaert worked with Pierre Mertens and Xavier Rombouts in Borgerhout. Borgerhout is known world-wide through the media because of the conflicts between immigrants and the Belgian population and also by the high percentage of people who voted for the extreme right party 'Vlaams Blok'. The results could be seen in the streets and squares of Borgerhout.
