COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT: Programme of activities linked with autumn's exhibitions

This programme of activities is organised within the framework of the exhibitions Algoritmos del algodón by Filipa César and On Fail[l]ed Tales and Ta[y]lors by the Madrassa collective. With these projects as the starting point, the programme aims to ask about the collective as a way of working and an artistic process. Certain vocabulary taken from networking seems to capture the propositional figure of the collective nowadays, turning it into a sterilised image free from any complexity. Thus, far from allowing us to explore in further depth the relationships between the subjects and the statements they propose, the scope of their action seems to be limited to a certain staging of horizontality and transparency. And although in reality the use of any language means different levels of interaction and a constant polarity between the voices and locations occupied by the actors, choosing collective production systems continues to lead to a variety of questions:

How is the knowledge and responsibility distributed in collective production and publishing processes? How can a vector of singularity be guaranteed in these processes? What are the methodologies used to showcase agreement and disagreement in formalisation processes? How does a collective understanding of authorship alter the relationship between work and context? And what happens when the result of these processes does not meet the forecasts and expectations created? What does the power of the collective consist of and where does it reside, after all?

These are some of the questions we want to ask within the framework of the exhibitions we are opening, two projects characterised by an openly collective production through which there is a dialogue with practices related to militant filmmaking, archive material, the media or activism.
The Collective Agreement programme will be developed in different stages starting in November 2019 until February 2020.
