AGENCY is part of an ongoing project about the transition of Docklands in various capitals with a history of shipbuilding. This publication focuses on the former shipbuilding company ADM, near the city of Amsterdam.

AGENCY specifically questions the role of community within the powerplays of city development. Does a community have the right to claim the land, after having lived there for over 20 years? Is ownership strictly defined through legislation? 

In this chapter the arguable question is raised of 'the right to the city', driving from the personal background of the photographer, who has experienced several struggles between communities and other powerhouses that determine urban planning.
