Contribution to panel discussion troubling the concept of the artist collective and its recent history.

In addition to Helena Reckitt, the panel comprised artist Simon Bedwell, a founder and longest-serving member of London art group BANK; Gavin Wade, director of the artist-run space Eastside Projects in Birmingham, UK; and representatives of artist collective LuckyPDF.
