From experimental restaurants to performative lectures, from social networks to public protests, cultural practices that focus on group work are gaining visibility. Whether contemporary enthusiasm for "social practice" comes from a desire for deep interaction in synchronous time, or from austerity measures and the poverty of the welfare state, the problems of possibilities of group work must be addressed. F**king Up is a conversation series that asks artists, educators, and curators to speak openly about struggles and desires in collaboration, documentation, narration, and commitment. Please join these free public conversations at Eyebeam on the third Wednesday of the month from March through June.
