Exploring the power of collaboration in the postwar avant-garde and beyond
Drawing on avant-garde movements of the 1960s and 1970s as well as conceptual and sociological approaches in contemporary art, Collaborations examines diverse strategies of collective authorship in artmaking. The book also investigates how the collaborative models identified can be cultivated on a broader social level. Also highlighting examples from the 21st century, Collaborations calls into question the shifting dynamics of collaboration in the face of rapidly dissolving fundamental social structures.
