"'Phantom City' is constructed as a novel which tells the story of a phantom city: a place that everybody recognizes but no one knows. By mixing her own texts and 'flaneur'- photographs all taken in Rotterdam between 2003 and 2009 with images and words culled from newspaper clippings, promotional materials, postcards, an image of an city emerges where the present, future and past collide and merge into an unexpected narrative."
