Thanks, Renate — and thanks to everyone for sharing your ideas and work with us!

Patty and I have really appreciated the opportunity to learn more about the projects that we discussed in our book, which we sometimes describe as a “celebration of collaboration.” Our framework emerged within the process of curating. We saw our work as making connections between the projects that artists, activists, advocate, intellectuals, and students were making around the world in different contexts.

I want to acknowledge the intellectual work of Patty and ,her co-director of the FLEFF, Tom Shevory, for devising FLEFF’s innovative themes that guide the calls for submissions for the online exhibitions, as well as Tanya Saunders, Assistant Provost of International Programs and Extended Studies, who makes FLEFF possible in so many ways. And, of course, a huge thank you to you (Renate) and Tim for keeping this platform alive and also for inaugurating the very first online exhibition at FLEFF nearly a decade ago.

Finally, I want to share with everyone the link to the latest FLEFF exhibit, Iterations as Habitats (http://www.ithaca.edu/fleff/iterations/), which includes brilliant projects by Francois Knoetza (South Africa), Chiara Passa (Italy), Kuesti Fraun (Germany), Ben Grosser (USA), Shazia Javed (India/Canada), Leah Shafer (USA), Banu Colak (Turkey/UAE), and Mario Ceolin (Italy).
