In this Context: Collaborations & Biennials

Collaborative work is of a special interest because it raises complex questions on the fundamentals of curating and artistic work through a questioning of exhibitionary complexes. These concerns extend through to the biennial form, where the thematics and their aesthetics move from formalist, object-bound sensibility to practices based on experimentation and agitation, processes, ephemerality, and political and social ideas that are locally embedded. The practices represented in this issue are not collectives and collaborations in the traditional sense, but practices that follow more self-instituting strategies grounded in their immediate socio-political contexts. This issue of OnCurating consists of two parts: the first part researches collaborative work with an emphasis on African collectives, and the second part offers an insight into the development of biennials on the African continent.
