The Philosophy Pop-Up Shop

TnA Kollective

Middle Gallery
24 Nov 2017–16 Dec 2017
Opening 12.00am 1 Jan 1970

The Philosophy Pop-Up Shop is a gift shop established by Marcel Mauss, who knows that there is no such thing as a free lunch. The Pop-Up Shop’s in-house designer is Plato, whose rough-and-ready style proves that ideas are more important than appearances. In order to make sure you don’t get seduced by surfaces, everything is in stunning black and white! Featuring a range of merchandise designed by world-famous philosophers, from Heraclitus to Heidegger, from Socrates to Spivak, at the Philosophy Pop-Up Shop, difficult concepts become bite-sized one-liners, perfect for this age of distracted consumers. So, whether you need a can of Spinoza’s Substance, or a Jane Bennett vibrator, pop along to the Philosophy Pop-Up Shop, where every ontological need is catered for.
