Coming from different cultural backgrounds, the members of the group work both individually and as part of a common discourse. The group of artists Collective Intelligence started to form in 2016, having as starting point the mechanisms of empathy and synergy that affect the work of artists.

Collective Intelligence can be defined as shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration, joint effort, and concurrence of many individuals and appears in consensus decision making. How to trigger and to manage collective intelligence at its best is an experimental process itself. Collective Intelligence group’s work method is based on a series of deep dive sessions up to one month long; encounters where artists, thinkers and activists work on parallel and shared projects, influencing each other in a convivial frame. What does the group seek? Unexpected assemblages, intuitive actions and heuristic knowledge.
