In this period of uncertainty, how can we come together to close societal divisions, share knowledge and increase production and organisation? These are the types of questions ACCA's Greater Together exhibition poses, suggesting our well-established ways of collaborating no longer fit the rapidly changing technologies, environments, societal and political landscapes. Utopian in its perspective, Greater Together brings together eight artist projects to consider ideas of collaboration and cooperation and how we might find solidarity in both the art world and broader society.
To help in this exploration, Melbourne-based art collective Field Theory will hold a fortnightly series of workshops, where they've enlisted the minds of several obscure local groups — including ex-military survivalists, the Melbourne Anarchist Club and the Victorian UFO Club — to devise a survival plan if disaster strikes.
Greater Together is open now and runs until Sunday, September 17. Be sure to head along to the Field Theory: Survival Sessions to ensure your survival bunker is well prepared.
