 “Check die Merrie” (Amsterdam slang for “Check out that Mercedes”) is project inspired by Amsterdam slang.
We collaborated with students of the Amsterdam West Nova College, two rappers and a researcher of the Meertens Instituut (a research institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences that studies the diversity in language and culture in the Netherlands). The result was a triptych of photographs, video images and sound-recordings which were projected onto the windows of the Amsterdam University Library.
