It's been a difficult year personally and professionally for Bob and Roberta Smith. But the success of the Art Party Conference in November has reinforced his view that it's always worth advocating for the arts and demanding change.
A fictional meeting and love affair on the Central line between the founder of the modern Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin, and German political theorist Hannah Arendt, is the basis for the short film and a series of images at Stratford Underground station.

The Stratford Cinema Kiosk is a new, specially-designed structure modelled on an original 1920s ticket booth. The kiosk will be showing Bob and Roberta Smith and Tim Newton’s film, Who is Community?, which was commissioned by Art on the Underground this year. A fictional meeting and love affair on the Central line between the founder of the modern Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin, and German political theorist Hannah Arendt, is the basis for the short film and a series of images at Stratford Underground station. Life-size cut-outs of characters from the film have appeared around the Stratford neighbourhood, advertising the coming of The Stratford Cinema Kiosk.
Please join us at Stratford Underground station to unveil the new artwork, before heading to the nearby Theatre Royal Stratford East for the Who is Community? Hannah Arendt Quiz Night,which will include a reading of the film script with live musical accompaniment by Tim Newton and a pub quiz designed by Bob and Roberta Smith. Musician Claire Woods will round out the evening with eclectic pop on the piano.
