informal strategies is a transformative art collective consisting of at least its two founding members Doris Denekamp and Geert van Mil, and is currently based in Rotterdam. Collaboration is pivotal to the work of the collective. While questioning notions of authorship, its members are always working on “how to be together otherwise”.

In the effort to subvert the all encompassing logic of capital it is looking for tools. Through self-education following alternating curricula, proceeding not unlike the knight of a chess game, it aims to open up alternative histories and unlikely futures. By venturing into the realm of poetics, it moves away from populist logic and corporate operation. Seeping, lingering and enacting are some of the strategies it applies.
