Documenta, the famed quinquennial event takes place in the German city of Kassel. It showcases contemporary art, using a variety of venues throughout the city. Documenta began as a postwar attempt at revitalization.
The artist list for the 15th edition of Documenta has been revealed. So far the curators have named 51 artists and collectives included in the show, slated to open on 18 June 2022. Participating artists have been grouped into 'mini-majelis'. The nationalities of the artists have also been omitted – replaced by their respective time zones.
The exhibition is being curated by the Indonesian collective Ruangrupa.
Documenta 15 is themed around the idea of lumbung, which translates from Indonesian as a sort of commons predicated upon resource-sharing.
Ruangrupa are organizing their show around the idea of lumbung, based on the model of a communal surplus-grain warehouse, created for shared future use.
