Watch this short clip of the always interesting artist Marina Abramovic, speak about her collective, Intergenerational Collaborations. Marina discusses the value of cross age collaboration as a key component to foster new ideas, and creating more interesting and diverse work. She traces back her concept to the salons and meeting spaces of the 19th century.

We couldn't agree more with Marina Abramovic. We should all work together to create a more beautiful and interesting world that connects all ages together. 

Below this really powerful reflection on intergenerational collaborations, we've added a short interview she did with The Pool UK about life and acceptance, turning 70 and her difficult childhood. Marina is mesmerising.
