Based on the mumok collection’s focus on the avant-gardes of the 1960s and 1970s as well as the conceptual and socio-analytical approaches of contemporary art, the exhibition Collaborations explores different strategies of collective authorship. The show spans from the smallest to the largest unit of togetherness: from the internal connectedness of the collective to the selective union of the connective, from the couple to society – and last but not least from the love relationship to the all-connectedness. Kollaborationen explores the question of how artistic model forms of a “we” can be made fruitful for social coexistence: What does collaboration mean in the 21st century, when fundamental social structures are visibly dissolving, and how do artists* respond to this?
