Collaboration

Creative archives are often collaborative in nature, as interdisciplinary practices embody something of the different characters involved in each project.

  • How do the traces in the archive chronicle the lives of two women and all the others they have encountered?
  • How can the work of many hands be identified in the archive?
  • Do you collaborate with others in your own practice to develop projects?
