Moving beyond the singular viewpoint, COMMON VISIONS proposes a critical look at a multitude of collaborative practices. Collective productions, works that interrogate the commons, the public sphere, and cultural memory, or that invest in a non-hierarchical relationship between those behind and those in front of the camera can become generative tools to think not only through reality but beyond it into productive imaginaries. While focusing on an international scope of practices – primarily from the 1960s-70s and today – this series shows how multiplicity, liveness, uncertainty, camaraderie, and friction can produce works both urgent and untidy, works that position their viewpoints and subjectivities between not only their makers but their viewers as well.
