Examining diverse strategies of collective authorship, with artists including Art & Language, Marina Abramovic & Ulay, Anna & Bernhard Johannes Blume, George Brecht, Phil Collins, Die Damen, Robert Filliou, Rimma & Valeriy Gerlovin, Gilbert & George, Richard Hamilton & Dieter Roth, Haus-Rucker-Co, Irwin, On Kawara, Alison Knowles, Louise Lawler, Lucy R. Lippard, George Maciunas, Ree Morton, Yoko Ono, Stephen Prina, Daniel Spoerri, Franz Erhard Walther, and Wiener Gruppe.

Published to accompany the exhibition at mumok, Vienna, which builds a bridge spanning from the smallest to the largest unit of togetherness - from the internal ties of the collective to a particular constellation of the connective, from the artist duo to society—and last but not least, from the love affair to the interconnectedness of life.

“Collaborations” investigates how artistic models of a “we” can be cultivated for life together as a society - what does collaboration mean in the twenty first century when fundamental social structures continue to dissolve? How have artists responded to such social and political developments over the decades and what is their position today?
