Common Study

Common Study is a space for art, education, and politics.

Common Study is a collaborative attempt to confront the contradictions of life under capital. Within the group, individual practices engage art, music, poetry, performance, moving image and activism. Collectively, Common Study aspires to develop a non-standardised, oppositional form of education and practice, exploring themes of critique, pedagogy, friendship and artistic autonomy. Individual concerns become common interests; common concerns become individual interests.

Present members are Mike Brooks, Lisa Busby, Katie Hare, Louis-Jack, Anneke Kampman, Theo Leanse, Sam Mercer, Hugh Nicholson, Jo Sweeney, T J Watson.
