Versus Laboratory has organized several conferences and seminars. Currently, together with Ozren Pupovac and Tzuchien Tho, Bruno Besana is leading a seminar — entitled Prolegomena to the Void — on the history of the concept of the void from early atomism to Hellenistic philosophy.

Preview — House of Exile by Evelyn Juers. House of Exile is an extraordinary book, and a really rare accomplishment. Nelly was twenty-seven years younger, the adopted daughter of a fisherman and a hostess in a Berlin bar. As far as Heinrich's family was concerned, she was from the wrong side of the tracks.
