Metropolis M in conversation with ACPA alumna Anja Groten
Contemporary art magazine Metropolis M talks with ACPA alumna Anja Groten about her dissertation and corresponding book she self-published with the Hackers & Designers collective.
In November 2022 Anja Groten received her PhD at the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA). What sparked her interest in the topic of collectivity and how did she start to research collectivity?
"Collectivity" is not necessarily an emancipatory practice as we know it from the sixties and seventies. It is very much intertwined with the precariousness and unstable working conditions of the cultural sector today."
