Think tank

The Think tank is an ongoing online library of new research that is building over the three years of How to work together.

We invite artists, researchers and thinkers from many fields to join an open exploration of ‘how to work together’: as it might relate to our work as organisations, the artists we collaborate with, and our local communities, as well as in society, politics and economics.

We hope to draw connections and reveal themes as the project grows and new contributions are added.

Think tank commissions are published here on the website and through a public programme that includes art works, research papers, essays, discussion events and performances.

— Introducing Source Sans How to work together

New on the Think tank:

Over the last year Dr Andrea Phillips has been working on a research project for How to work together on the ways in which art’s organisational structures shape its politics. The first outcomes — a series of interviews with Emily Pethick, Joe Scotland and Polly Staple, and an introductory essay — are now available to read online.

Dr Andrea Phillips is Reader in Fine Art and Director of the Doctoral Research Programmes at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

We are grateful to

How to work together, supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation

For supporting the How to work together Think Tank during both the first and second years of the project: 2013-14 and 2014-15.
