What happens with an artwork in collaboration? What happens to agency and authorship? How the users change the work and what this democratization of the practice can do? What does coming together in time could mean?
Maja Bekan hosted a project for our BEAR students on ideas of collaboration, agency, collectivity, authorship, appropriation and politics of care by looking into recent and not so recent examples from visual and performance art. The students worked through a process of collective actions and readings including texts that inform and influence Maja’s own art practice. They explored the possibilities of using social as a medium and a tool for institutional transformation.
