Theory Tuesdays is a non-academic platform for theoretical discussion founded, organized and coordinated by Philip Matesic since 2009. Participants read beforehand then discuss contemporary art, design, literary, cultural and critical theory texts on a weekly basis, with the texts selected and introduced each week by a different person. The platform has operated under this "Each One, Teach One" philosophy since its conception.
Theory Tuesdays has taken place 187 times in Zürich, Switzerland at the following locations: Corner College / Perla-Mode, Corner College, Counter Space, Reseda Lochergut, Villa Rigi and Kunsthalle Zürich. In 2018, ten Theory Tuesdays sessions will be held again at the Kunsthalle Zürich, during the Rob Pruitt: The Church exhibition.
