Unlearning the Rules of Collectivity 2018
Unlearning the Rules of Collectivity is a research project that studies practices of collaboration for art and education models and existent communities. In the thesis, there is an interest in looking at the meaning of community and cooperation, and in rethinking these concepts in different terms. My proposal is to introduce different values that would aim to create a balance between individuals and their natural competitive forces, and the collective, with a need for community and cooperation. The research explores a variety of possibilities and values which calls for a need for balance.
Giulia explores models of collaboration for art and communication. She is interested in dialogical structures for sharing and making and counter-practices in the organization of communal life. Her work includes projects such as The Autonomous Archive, a digital database that archives the historical documents of a former squat, and The Temporary Autonomous Bureau, a temporary office and educational project that explores meanings of self-organization for the city of Rotterdam.
