Foundland (Ghalia Elsrakbi, Lauren Alexander and Dirk Vis)  is a young multi-disciplinary art and design practice based in Amsterdam. With backgrounds in graphic design, art and writing Foundland’s approach focuses on research based, critical responses to current issues.

We are a non-profit organization, established in 2009. Since our inception, we have continually focused on critical analysis of topics related to political and place branding and the way recent trends in these fields affect citizens in the Netherlands. Our field of interest is not limited to the Netherlands and we are currently busy with projects exploring similar themes in South Africa and Syria.

We consider the public domain of conventional media such as advertising, printed matter, the internet as well as art spaces as locations for our research and visual output. We like to foster collaboration with institutions and individuals according to current projects.
