Session 1: “Toward Participation in Art” by Rudolf Frieling, Presented by Philip Matesic, Corner College (Perla Mode), Zurich, 2009
THEORY TUESDAYS is a non-academic platform for theoretical discussion founded by Philip Matesic in 2009. Participants read beforehand then discuss selected art, design, literary, cultural and critical theory texts. Theory Tuesdays has operated under the “Each One, Teach One“ model since its conception, with each session being run by a different person.
During each session a different participant presents a text, opening up for discussion a topic of interest to a larger, engaged public. The discussions are a blend of knowing and not-knowing, being critical and playful, each one teaching the other. By being free and open to the public, the weekly circulation of varying topics and presenters makes it possible to just drop in and discuss.
THEORY TUESDAYS was held at Corner College from 2009–2014, then at Counter Space in 2015. Since January 2016, the sessions take place at the Reseda Lochergut furniture showroom. In early 2017, THEORY TUESDAYS will be traveling to the Kunsthalle Zürich, where nine sessions will be held as part of the “Speak, Lokal” group exhibition.
