D+M Visiting Artist Series: Spurse Collective

Spurse is an open-ended group of individuals and organizations that work together as a type of experimental consultation service towards the development of new forms of engagement, practices and knowledges. We believe that there is a necessity today of working collectively to rethink all of the givens of our modes of being in the world so to develop new forms of practices and knowledges. We are creatures who are not alone — and we, as creatures, are a type of collective — a complex entanglement of many other creatures (bacteria, fungi, protocistae etc.), systems, habits, matters of concern and forces at varying scales. This world, is a world that we are not simply “in” but we are, rather, an intra-actively co-emerging part of this dynamic world. It is a world of irreducible messiness, complexity and open-ended multiplicity.
