Abstract

In this piece, the authors discuss their experience of working as an art collective and how for more than a decade of artistic practice they have developed practices of self-organisation. The habits and management of our collective also reflect our relationship with contemporary art and technologies. We have named this modality of work Post Fail: a mode of making and thinking about art, and our hyper-connected lives more generally, as always failing, and necessarily disappointing our expectations. They describe and reflect on these practices, and explain how the notion of Post Fail could provide a pathway to rethink some of the approaches to contemporary media art.
