Part of program Stroom School: Céline Condorelli: Proposals for a Qualitative Society (Spinning)

In her work and in this exhibition Céline Condorelli is inspired by the ideas and political philosophy of Hannah Arendt (1906-1975); and especially by Arendt's view of culture as "the company one chooses to keep, amongst people, amongst things, amongst thoughts, in the present as well as in the past". Therefore, we invited the philosopher Daan Roovers to tell us more about the ideas and theories of Hannah Arendt. Roovers recently wrote Mensen maken. Nieuw licht op opvoeden (Ambo/Anthos 2017), focusing, amongst others, on Arendt's interpretation of the concept of amor mundi - ‘love for the world'.

The Hague wine shop De filosoof will serve wine especially selected for the occasion.

Proposals for a Qualitative Society (Spinning) is made possible through the generous support of the Mondriaan Fund, BankGiro Loterij Fonds, BPD Cultuurfonds and the City of The Hague.
