A Collective Action in Arts adn Daily Life
Cankarjev dom, M1, Ljubljana
Complices are partners that jointly decide to plan and execute a crime. Yet complicities are also a legal practice among artists, entrepreneurs and scientists. Complicity is a temporary and yet obliging and intensive form of collaboration. Using images and texts, this contribution calls for an artistic mode of research in which dance, music, business and science are to jointly pursue a social and artistic phenomenon.
