COLLECTIVE TASK, founded in 2006, is an international group of artists and poets with over 30 revolving participants. Our premise is simple: on the first day of each month a member of the collective assigns a task, or prompt, for the other members to complete within the month. These monthly responses appear on our website. Additionally, we have published three volumes of our collective responses.
COLLECTIVE TASK performed at MoMA, the Berlin Poetry Festival, and several other venues. In 2017, we facilitated a workshop version of COLLECTIVE TASK at the Goethe Institut in Baghdad. Recently, we have expanded to support the publication of collective and collaborative art projects beyond our monthly task responses.
Since 2020, COLLECTIVE TASK has been working more intermittently.
