This series is the first co-commission by three institutions in the Netherlands of a single work by an artist. This winter it is presented sequentially in overlapping exhibitions with different episodes opening at Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory in Utrecht, De Hallen Haarlem (opening: 13 December), and De Appel (opening: 23 January 2015) in Amsterdam, creating a nomadic viewing experience through which to see the entire work. The Common Sense was filmed in Amsterdam, Utrecht, and Toronto and is supported by Dommering Foundation. The Toronto shooting was supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the University of Toronto.

Casco’s program is made possible with the financial support of City Council of Utrecht, Mondriaan Fund, DOEN Foundation and the European Union Culture Programme.
