what is a collective?

MSFAC, Birmingham
August 2013


As part of artist collective HIVE, multiples, text, film and photography work produced during the Chain Reaction project was installed and curated across a week of dialogue and exchange between MSFAC Radical Arts, [RHP] CDRs and other visiting artists & collectives. Unpacking the outputs that define their collective processes HIVE reappropraited their concepts and art work within the new environment at The Edge, Digbeth. Absorbing the aesthetics and trends present within their temporary base, the new work raised questions about collective process and collaborative practice, exploring the areas between, and the multi-layered elements incorporated in group working.
