“In a video interview, film scholar Marc Siegel introduces gossip as a helpful model to understand how artist collectives or different groups come together, define themselves, and break apart. Gossip isn’t simply a means of oral communication, but a type of knowledge as well as a hypothetical logic of thought. It generates shared speculations, collective convictions, values and systems of reference. It helps forging intimacy, creating trust and strong bonds between its performers. This lecture is the transcript of a series of discussions with seven people more or less involved in the now deceased offspace New Jerseyy in Basel. It is a part of my research observing gossip in the context of group dynamics specifically within artistic communities.” -Ramaya Tegegne
