Group work in the art of today bases on strategies known for several decades. Artists working together have often engaged themselves in current social problems and human rights movements. They are continuing to do so, now exploring the possibilities offered by new media.

The exhibition forms a kind of catalogue of contemporary methods of collective work, developed mostly by artists in their thirties. We will be able to see works of duos (Pakui Hardware, Foundland Collective, and Part-time Suite) as well as of more numerous groups (GCC, Laboria Cuboniks). Among them, there are collectives formed for a specific purpose, groups adapting the formula of music bands, others referring to the models of work found mostly in business or those connecting people professionally involved in various fields.
