Change is possible.
Change is necessary.
Change is inevitable.


COMMONISM is a meeting of two people in search of some common ground. We want to think about where we are and where we might be going, the things that unite us as well as the things that divide us. We want to make some suggestions for the future. For our common future.

COMMONISM is a performed conversation, a dialogue between two artists – Andy Smith (UK) and Amund Sjølie Sveen (NO) – that asks questions about nationality, internationality, art and politics.
