Co-Ideology: Perks and Problems of Sharing

Caroline Busta in conversation with Neil Beloufa, Simon Denny and Young Girl Reading Group
In a Western context, "collaboration" is typically enacted either for the optics of co-branding - the marketing of a product under two brand names - or as a questionably effective exercise in corporate team-building. Naturally occurring "collaboration," where individual identity is de-emphasized as a collective body comes to the fore is largely antithetical to the personal competition neoliberal capitalism reinforces.
In this panel, Caroline Busta, founder of, speaks with artists Neil Beloufa, Simon Denny as well as Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kukbokaitė of the artist-collective Young Girl Reading Group about the terms of collaboration today. Not only do each of these panelists has practices that require the coordination of many different co-producers but the subjects they engage and the performances they stage are often sited in various parts of the world, including regions where notions of individual and collective, authorship and ownership vary greatly.
