Pil and Galia Kollectiv are London based artists, writers and curators working in collaboration. Their work explores the legacy of the avant-garde in the changing context of creative work and instrumentalised leisure. They are interested in the relationship between art and politics and the role irony and belief play in its current articulation. Their band WE extends the role of music in their artwork, as well as their interrogation of the construction of individuality and collectivity. They are also the directors of artist run project space xero, kline & coma in London. They have a joint PhD. in fine art from Goldsmiths College and work as lecturers in Fine Art at the university of Reading and senior lecturers at the Cass School of Art.
