COLLABORATION_ is a non profit exhibiting project created by Thomas Thiede and six artist-colleagues who are connected to Munich. COLLABORATION_ holds its focus on exhibiting, where the artists involved come together at specific points and in different scenarios and work together to construct a coherent and collaborative exhibition. The artists understand something about working together in these scenarios. The collaboration is two-fold: one, between the same artists working almost like a rock band travelling from place to place on an ad hoc European tour, coming together to gig now and again without the need to practice; and two, between the group and other artist groups in the cities in which they are been hosted. It's an economic strategy - one individual's network of friends and support structure become a support structure for the entire group. COLLABORATION_, through its conception and development, make it possible for other artists and curators to become part of the project and to continue it in their own way.
