From my inbox via Andy Abbot/Black Dogs...
1. The practice or principle of giving a group priority over each individual in it.

Black Dogs art collective wish to use the RadicalAesthetics/RadicalArt event ‘Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer’ on June 14th as an opportunity to facilitate a dialogue on the theme of ‘collectivism’.

Our proposed activity will take the form of a 20-minute slideshow containing up to 40 slides. Prior to the start of the slideshow a pamphlet will be distributed to each member of the audience. The pamphlet is designed to be read (silently) alongside the slideshow, with each page relating to a specific slide/image.

Black Dogs are inviting contributions to this exercise. Please send us a slide plus accompanying page (to be printed) that is either for or against collectivism (as defined above). Keep in mind the manner in which the audience will engage with your contribution and the amount of time they will spend with the slide and page (no more than 30 seconds).

Please send slides as (colour) jpegs in Powerpoint format (960 x 720 pixels) and pages as A5 black and white PDFs by 5pm Friday May 31st to Your contribution will then be considered for inclusion in the pamphlet and presentation and archived on our website.

Thanks and best wishes

Black Dogs
