Partisan Social Club: On Trying to be Collective

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsInvited talkResearch


In this talk, we asked in what way can the notion of care, collectivising and the collective become a primary part of contemporary art practice. And further, what types of art practices address these central tenets of democracy? Andy Hewitt and Mel Jordan do this by reflecting on the political potential of care and its importance as a tool for achieving an equal society. They employ their previous practice as the Freee Art Collective, as well as more recent work as the Partisan Social Club to consider in what ways their practice can be deemed collective.
