Contrary to the most commonly acknowledged model of artistic practice ? the singular, solitary genius ? some form of collaboration is inherent to every artwork, even if the viewer is not made aware of this creative exchange. Organized by guest curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, who are themselves a collaborative curatorial duo, I Put a Spell On You surveys 11 distinct models of collective practice, highlighting the complex, coauthored process of artistic production.
Artists also collaborate within larger artistic collectives. Hesam Rahmanian and brothers Rokni and Ramin Haerizadeh began their artistic collaboration while in exile in Dubai, after leaving their Iranian homeland. The collective GCC comprises artists around the world who share strong ties to the Arabian Gulf region. Artists and artist collectives also collaborate with specific community or social groups, such as the filmmaker duo Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca, who capture street performances by dance groups in their film Swinguerra.
