A new program series is being launched in the Hague, and it’s called the Reading Room. It’s hosted by the Hague-based artist initiative Platform for Thought in Motion in collaboration with iii.

The Reading Room is a series of public reading groups revolving around short texts provided by invited guests – contemporary researchers, cultural theorists, philosophers and artists – who join to provide insight and context to the topics of the material at hand.

Think of it like a once a month university seminar class. After attending the first session I would highly recommend it. Its a great way to get a dose of theory and subsequent conversation with fellow peers and experts in an intimate setting at no cost.
