Auto Italia South East
What are the desired conditions to produce artwork? What is enabled by working collaboratively that is greater than what we can achieve alone?
Marianne Forrest and Edward Gillman of the London-based artist-run project and studio Auto Italia South East will lead ‘Auto Italia: Shell Corporation’, a half-day session presenting research and references informing Auto Italia’s current programme and studio practice.
Touching on alternative methods for producing and distributing artwork through collaborative production, the session will consider the potentials for art and artistic practice enabled through operating under the guise(s) of Auto Italia. The session will encourage a collective imagining of what ‘artist-led’ groups might look like and operate as in the future, touching on histories of group production and seeking enlightenment from examples found in theories of group work, esoteric decision-making strategies and role-play.
*A shell corporation is a company which serves as a vehicle for business transactions without itself having any significant assets or operations.
