Department of Collective Collaboration
On-site installation, performative meetings, texts and drawings on the wall, videos, photos and website
Process-based collective work with Ida Leijting, Lena Longefay and Tianyi Zheng
As an office, as well as a meeting place, one of the main activities of the Department of Collective Collaboration is that of facilitating (in-person) conversations. Although the somewhat large (conference) table may fool you, these talks hardly involve anything conventionally office-like: the majority (if not all) of our work is performed casually; through water cooler gatherings, lunch talks and smoking-break conversations. The few ways in which our work may differ from day to day talk is that it is often (consensually) recorded, and (vaguely) centres around the topics of collectivity and collaboration.
