Post/autonomia                             The Living Room(s)

The Living Room(s) is a collective of five international practitioners living and working in the Amsterdam West. The collective organizes and curates cultural events: art exhibitions, performances, discursive events and community activities. All The Living Room(s) activities evolve from the urgency to question the notions of community, hospitality and identity. These notions have been changing rapidly throughout the last few decades and need to be readdressed and adjusted in light of the constant economical, political and social changes of our times. In order to bring these concepts to a practical investigation, The Living Room(s) collective uncovers these issues on the street level, where common people share a common space. This common space is wielded to create, reflect and question our every day reality.

The Livingroom(s) is: a curator (Yael Messer), a performer (Anat Spiegel), a journalist (Gilad Reich), a composer (Thomas Myrmel) and a group facilitator (Yonathan Keren). Together with its diverse communities, this peculiar consolidation of people challenges the artificial separation between form and content, theory and practice, politics and poetics.
