dear all, 

temporary services are making a book about artist collectives and there 
is a clear LACK again when it comes to collectives based in asia and the 
asia pacific and the middle east and east europe!!!! i've looked at the 
list and am sure that there are many collectives who are not in it-- i'm 
trying my best to compile a list, but it is getting to be too much work 
for me alone (again). so if you can, please help, by submitting some 
names on their website, or forwarding this email to the collectives. 

e.g. The Kingpins from Sydney are NOT on the list... nor is KYTV from 
Singapore, nor Videotage from Hong Kong, nor AIT from Tokyo, etc etc etc...

check out the list : http://www.groupsandspaces.net 

can you please forward this email to as many artist collectives as 
possible as soon as possible to update the information on their 
website!!! thanks, this is important!!!!

Dear enthusiasts of group work and collaboration:

Please help us build a database of people working in arts and 
arts-related groups, collectives and movements.

Temporary Services has worked as a group since late in 1998. We are 
interested in the cultures of collaboration and collectivity within 
group practice.  

While much recent attention has been given to these ways of working, few 
substantial documents have been produced that reflect the amount of work 
that has been accomplished. There is also a need for more writing on the 
inner dynamics of the group process: how collaborations are formed, how 
decisions are made, how conflict is resolved, and so on.

We are compiling the names, locations, and dates (when available) of art 
and arts-related groups, which can include those who work as curatorial 
collectives. We would like your help!

The list will be published in a book we are working on titled Group 
Work. The book will include interviews, quotes about working together, 
lists of words used to describe the numerous ways in which we group 
ourselves, and a list of historic and currently active groups.

The list will also be a part of a larger initiative called Groups and 
Spaces that several people have contributed to. Groups and Spaces 
includes groups of one person (who still chooses to work under a group 
name), couples who work as a group, groups of three or more people, and 
open networks that are named, but aren't necessarily a collective or 
more circumscribed group.

We would like your help to develop this list and make it as 
comprehensive as possible. Please visit http://www.groupsandspaces.net 
<http://www.groupsandspaces.net/> to see the list of groups and to 
submit names of groups not listed, corrections to information already 
posted, or any suggestions you have to make the list better.

The list is still under construction, but is public and accessible to 
all. A more sophisticated, searchable database and sets of research 
tools are planned for the site after this preliminary list making is over.

Thank you,

Temporary Services
