Collective Forces

Raqs Media Collective »


The photographic work by Raqs Media Collective was developed in winter 2007 for Bildpunkt – the magazine of the Austrian art association IG Bildende Kunst – with the thematic focus on “collective forces”. In a text on this subject, the artists conceptually define collectivity as the shadow of all things. They write: “Just as contours of the shadow merge, distinctive borders blur, too. And just as light prolongs and shortens the shadow, collectivity also changes its dimension.” Maybe, as is well known, those who are in the light and are seen still have to expect a lot from the collective forces that develop in the shadow, where they are not so visible at all.
