The text examines the experience of two projects made between bachelor’s students from the Visual Arts Faculty of the Michoacan University of Saint Nicholas of Hidalgo (Morelia, Mexico) and the Art Faculty of the Kuban State University (Krasnodar, Russia). This collaboration resulted in the creation of an artist’s book, which includes a graphic portfolio with etchings and a fanzine lithograph collective book. The artist book, as a contemporary visual art genre, is the most appropriate project for teamwork. It favours the development of cross-cultural experiences and involves students in intercultural communication because it is possible to understand an artist’s book without any translation. The artist’s book creation process identifies a range of skills and knowledge that are interdisciplinary or sometimes highly specialised, so it allows comparing educational systems of two countries. Authors base their many years of experience on emphasising critical aspects of the collaborative art projects organisation and examining methods and prescriptions to realise the projects in detail. Both projects were carried out from a distance, sharing the progress and images through the Google Drive platform in the collective folders to which the coordinators and participants had access. The project ‘Landscape without Borders’ had 12 artists involved, while the fanzine ‘Space and Borders’ had 33 people. Both projects were presented to the public and universities via a Skype conference simultaneously.
