Collectivity in artmaking, as well as the desire to make art for the wider collective, are strategies employed by artists to critique the forces of commodification and institutionalisation to which art is subject. Acknowledging that particular attention has been paid to the modes and motives of ‘collectivity’ in the past decade, 19th Biennale artists discuss their practice in relation to this phenomenon. This masterclass is designed for tertiary students and interested members of the public.

This project was made possible with generous assistance from the Nelson Meers Foundation.
