Collaboration and movements with Johanna Linsley (2015)

The talk will consider the ‘movement’ of collaboration, and the ways collaboration operates in relation to other political ‘movements’.  Economic precarity creates challenges for collaborative work, but also makes it increasingly necessary, she draws on examples of her work with the group ‘I’m With You,’ which began as a series of events in domestic spaces, and which continues to investigate queer domesticity through, for example, the ongoing project Gorge, which looks at consumption and digestion as opportunities for collective and embodied thought and queer sociality. She references historical and contemporary examples of cooperative living, moving away from models of collaboration that aim simply for the convivial, in the hope of retaining space for speculative propositions and potentialities.
