Corrido[o]r: A look into a part of the philosophical community at Vendelstraat 8, second floor

Author: Tine Wilde
Website CORRIDO[O]R can give visitors, for example students, head hunters eagerly scouting about for genius talent, mothers who have lost their clever child, politicians searching for bright quotes, or visiting smart professors from competing universities, and the like, a glimpse behind the scenes of the everyday practices of a group of philosophers in the Universiteit van Amsterdam.

In order to look behind and beyond the scenes, it is desirable that one has a view on the scenes themselves. Thus, I - an artist/philosopher who occupies room 222 - took photographs i.e., I made an overview - of what someone sees when he opens the door of a particular room, situated on the second floor at the right of Vendelstraat 8. I am convinced that a philosophy department should have a perspicuous organisation, one that is intelligible and transparent for the outside world, so that students, head hunters, mothers and children, politicians and professors know what they can expect.

This website is part of a larger project and as such will play a role in an exhibition next year. For more information, see the website at http://www.illc.uva.nl/hum/corrido(o)r/ or contact
