This chapter presents And Or, an international digital research project reimagining the relationship between art, interpretation, exhibition, and theory. An interdisciplinary collective, we have opted to found a collaborative space rather than remain eternal guests in one another’s domains. And Or is both an online exhibition project and investigatory work, inviting collaborators to critically experiment with each others’ work in an online context. In establishing new ground within the dematerialized digital, we seek to create a third space where writing and art can be brought together in new configurations. As part of this approach, we have confronted the necessity of interrogating the relative positions of the curator and the viewer. This text presents the theoretical and artistic underpinnings of the And Or project and describes our current, past, and future productions in this exploration of a third space and an alternative art experience.
