In collaboration with Birmac

And Others: The Gendered Politics and Practices of Art Collectives

BIRMAC and Art Monthly, in association with Electra, present a series of four online panel conversations investigating different questions central to collective work. Building on two months of asynchronous collective writing, involving seventeen participants, the panelists below consider how we might write, think, read and practice together through other means.

Convened and moderated by Lina Dzuverovic, Birkbeck, University of London

4: ‘The Third Hand’ – Claire, Bernadette and Friends

Helena Reckitt, Chris McCormack, Gerrie van Noord

Considering the deliberate erasure of individual identities, this panel combines two interwoven lines of enquiry. Firstly, it considers a particular approach to working collectively, one in which the identities of each individual artist involved are deliberately obfuscated, forming a singular, newly created artist with their own name and a distinct, manufactured identity – what Charles Green terms the ‘third hand’.

Online event – free, but booking essential.
