Acting Together: rethinking existing approaches to collective action
tags: Kollektiv, Processus artistiques
This text investigates collective action as an artistic practice. Such practice is often collaborative and curatorial, both working within artist groups and by involving the audience and other artists interactively and socially, and has been particularly marked in the contemporary visual arts since the early 1990s. Rethinking collective action as an opportunity to become conscious of action and togetherness, ‘archival mind’ resistant to ‘curatorial mind’ is proposed as an artistic practice in order to discuss participation in the contemporary visual arts.
