Hegert: Deliberate Operations #3

Availability: In stock

From the Everything is Collective websiteDELIBERATE OPERATIONS reflects the EIC's view of how it conducts considered and sustained operations in space and sets the foundation for developing other fundamentals, tactics, techniques, and procedures. These operations are designed and/or spontaneously realized to reveal or conceal certain features of the environment. Evidence of these operations may be presented as photographs, texts, publications, exhibitions, meetings and rendezvous. However, these manifestations are only temporary. They should be regarded as always in flux, providing an ever-shifting framework of ideas and actions upon which to build the provisional and tenuous responses necessary to engage the larger issues of impermanence and amorphousness in contemporary life. DELIBERATE OPERATIONS can be thought of as a ghost structure erected in the gaps between conventional knowledge and abstract thought. This structure, which reveals the true shape of these conventions, as well as the potential for their negation, is of greater interest to us than any of the specific subjects addressed here in. For these records to mean anything, they must come alive in classrooms, homes, workplaces, public spaces and daily practice. Learn from them, adhere to them, and continue to help us adapt them to the complex and competitive environments in which we operate. Victory starts here! Everything Is Collective (E.I.C.) is an ongoing collaboration between three artists: Jason Lukas, Zach Norman, and Aaron Hegert. Since 2013 the group has worked together on numerous exhibitions, publications, and web-based projects, all of which address contemporary issues in photography and image making. Our practice is truly collaborative, and all the works we create are attributed to the group as a whole. Because of the special nature of this collaboration, our projects do not conform to the traditional structures that photographic work often fits into, nor can our concepts be easily explained by a simple thematic text. We treat our collaboration as a microcosm, a space where the most contentious and exciting subjects in contemporary photography, art, and culture at large can be stripped away from the Grand Narratives to which they have been assigned, and be explored in a more intentional, devious, and uncompromising way.
