artist collective / by Nicole Marroquin

I found out about this artist collective run by Diego Gutierrez called el despacho
and the cool thing is, they work as a collective with fluxuating membership. Also, video as a primary medium. And also, they do international collaborations. I read about them in the book Shifting Map: Artists' platforms and strategies for cultural diversity. I am convinced that somehow in some interdiciplinary way, artists and activists and educators are going to get together on the web and make something huge. Something for the kids. It might be called art, but maybe not. Here is another article on this model of practice. All in all, it looks like a rockin good time and though the form is less recognizable, it time it will seem like it was there all along. Oh, art.
