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
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.

***Please forward this widely so many people can see it and contribute.
Sorry if you get this more than once.***
