The group had an eventual reunion(a discourse on their individual work)in 2009 due to a retrospective exhibition at the National gallery of Macedonia. Later on as well their new work "The trailer files" was included at this years 54th international Biennale in Venice. "Paperworks" is a project based on numerous photographic material constituted during the preparations of "The trailer files", which are used as propositions which try to expand the definitions of photography, and its properties as a medium". Psychedelic, pop art and surrealism, all things that are the flow and feel of their work. "Paperworks", is grounded in political thought with a strong sense of abstract expressionism towards individual collectivism. The feelings their work provokes within you are amazement, wonder, fear, uncertainty, and curiosity. Paperworks touches on traditional, abstract somber thoughts, and story telling; a world filled with questions within riddles. A Macedonian version of Alice in wonderland(in their case Zeroland), but you, the viewer have become Alice, and at some point you realize you have come through their "Looking Glass". Theirs is world(their collective art) all its own, tinged with the uncertainty, and strange beauty, of nation seeking a future and an identity that is distant, but not so far as it once was in 1991. Collective Zero is, Miodrag Desovski, Aco Stankoski, Bedi Ibrahim, Zlaltko Trajkovski, Igor Toshevski, Sinisha Cvetkovski, and Gorancho Gjorgjievski. Video support for the group: Steven Shashkov.
