Artist Klaas Burger invited me to research the underlying causes why people end up on campings.
During four months we visited over seven campings and spoke to residents, owners, politicians on the municipal and state level, social workers, and migrant worker organisations.
Neoliberalism believes that less government interference and more free market will realize a better society.
Spearheaded in the 1980s by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, they lowered taxes for the rich, froze wages, broke unions, and privatized public services like public transport, utilities, social housing, and healthcare.

Why are people in one of the richest countries in the world living in slum-like conditions?
When international flights became cheaper in the late 1990s the parks emptied out, attracting people who were in need of cheap housing.
Since then many campings have permanent residents with nowhere else to go.
This has made investing in the stock market or real estate more profitable than earning a wage by working.After Fort Oranje was closed many local governments stopped tolerating illegal residency and have evicted and fined those who live on campings illegally.Since 2014 the national budget for homeless shelters has been cut.On campings we encountered people from all walks of life, an architect who lost clients, had to sell their house with debt, and ended up homeless; a psychologist whose husband passed away leaving the next of kin with bankruptcy.People with a small debt that becomes a big debt, end up being evicted from social housing.
