In Module One we introduce ideas about ‘networks’, the ‘networked professional’ and cooperation. There is a discussion on Game theory, particularly the ‘prisoners Dilemma’.

The idea of cooperation is explored in many artists processes. Art activism often uses the idea of making something together as a way to value and highlight community. I feel collaboration has a part in the map of an artists practice. Where is collaboration in your practice, in your inquiry, in your field of work?
Here is a video talk about collaboration and the work of a poet who uses collaboration as part of process. If you asked yourself how to collaborate each time you started a creative process what interesting ethical considerations does it raise - different for each situation I would think. In this way collaboration could be seen as a principle for learning not just an organising tool.
