The series of talks Collaboration Camps brings up for discussion one of the most pressing themes in contemporary artistic production: the collaborative relationship that develops between artists themselves or within collectives. What is the impact of this relationship on the processes of creation and the empathy that the audience and the artists themselves have with their works? How can these cooperative relationships change the way we think about artistic creation, opening up aesthetic possibilities, but also creating new forms of cultural agency and policies? These questions have been acquiring a decisive new shape in recent decades, resulting from the challenges and the possibilities that globalisation and networking have also brought to artistic creation.
For over two days, Collaboration Camps seeks to become an unprecedented meeting place between thinkers and creators. Following the seminars, it will be presented a talk with collectives associations SOOPA (Tuesday) and JA.CA (Wednesday).
