Kerry Downey and Douglas Paulson, two artists who use collaboration as the basis of much of their own work, are the creative forces behind the In the Making course for teens titled Clubs, Gangs, and Secret Societies: The Art of Working Collaboratively. They have been bringing their collective of NYC youths through a variety of projects and activities exploring the history and philosophy surrounding artists working together in order to create collaborative work. In this segment, they interview a selection of MoMA Teens about an experience that they created in tandem with Reactor, a UK-based art collective. Using Skype and the classroom phones, Reactor "took over" the studio one afternoon, leading the students (and instructors) on an incredible artistic event.
