Just released! Ursula Schulz-Dornburg’s new book Huts, Temples, Castles features photographs the artist made in 1969 while researching the alternative playground Jongensland (“Boysland”), in Amsterdam
Located on an island accessible only by rowboat, Jongensland grew into a sprawling settlement built experimentally from scrap materials by its young inhabitants. Here, children would cook food, raise animals, build fires, and trade with each other. Without adult intervention, they relied on shared resourcefulness and collaborative ingenuity.
