AC- Collaboration Research Group2009
AC is a London-based research group interested in trans-disciplinary collaborative practices, composed of artists, art writers and curators. It was founded in 2010 at Goldsmiths College, University of London, by six researchers of the Art Department's PhD programme: Carla Cruz, Wiebke Gronemeyer, Nina Höchtl, Julia Martin, Marit Münzberg and Lee Weinberg.
As a newly formed group AC does not have a collective past yet. Its profile to day draws from the kaleidoscopic depository of its members' experiences and their synergies.
As an acronym AC stands for various meanings. It illustrates the different positions from and about which to speak. 'Since each of us were several, there was already quite a crowd.' (Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia, trans. Brian Massumi (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1987), 3).
As part of our ongoing research and practice, we work within art events that have in their agenda an affiliation with either of the concerns we are investigating. We offer workshops, colloquiums in which we examine the possibility of creating collaborative and alternative readings of artistic and curatorial practices.
