The Common Room,

Reading. Invitation, 29,7 × 42 cm

Werkplaats Typografie, Arnhem, 2016

Initially The Common Room was an underground space founded in 1957, by Franciszka and Stefan Themerson who would invite artists, philosophers, scientists and poets to carry out readings, round tables and other performative interventions through the lens of ‘Pataphysics (a “science of imaginary solutions”). In 2016 the support group was re-activated: this symbolic space of debate was retrieved and invented theories were discussed seriously regardless of truths.
