From experimental restaurants to performative lectures, from social networks to public protests, artistic practices that focus on group work are gaining visibility. Whether contemporary enthusiasm for social practices comes from a desire for deep interaction in synchronous time, or from austerity measures and the poverty of the welfare state, these social practice must be addressed. Fucking Up is a lecture series that asks artists, educators, and curators to speak openly about mistakes and possibilities in collaboration, documentation, narration, and commitment. Please join these free public conversations at Eyebeam on the third Wednesday of the month from March through June.
