Risk the Shit Show

Risk The Shit Show

workshops, event

Gelegenheiten, Berlin, 2015

Risk the Shit Show asks how informal hierarchies can be dealt with in arts and activist collaborations.
How can our work be based on trust and equality?

Participants were invited based on a mycelium-like structure: the two initiators each invited one person, who then invited two more people. Each participant gave a workshop, sharing their strategies for collective working. 

One person took over the camera each day. Short films on strategies, practices, questions and challenges of collaboration were made and shared with the public on the last evening of the project.
