Why are you taking so many photographs?
A candid conversation about documentation and ethics with curators Laurel Ptak and Natasha Marie Llorens
Supported by A Blade of Grass, OurGoods.org, and Eyebeam
From experimental restaurants to performative lectures, from social networks to public protests, artistic practices that focus on group work are gaining visibility. Whether contemporary enthusiasm for social practices comes from a desire for deep interaction in synchronous time, or from austerity measures and the poverty of the welfare state, these social practice must be addressed. Fucking Up is a lecture series that asks artists, educators, and curators to speak openly about mistakes and possibilities in collaboration, documentation, narration, and commitment.
