“We want to create a globally oriented, collaborative and interdisciplinary art and culture platform that will remain effective beyond the 100 days of documenta fifteen. Our curatorial approach strives for a different kind of collaborative model of resource use — in economic terms but also with regard to ideas, knowledge, programs and innovations.“

With these words, the Indonesian collective Ruangrupa describes the project conceived for Documenta 15 which will be open from 18 June to 25 September 2022 in Kassel, Germany. This edition has as its theme the concept of “lumbung” (in Indonesian it represents the place where the harvest is conferred in excess of rice) and therefore tries to rely on the idea of a common, horizontal and shared warehouse. Working on an alternative model whose references are the community and sustainability, Ruangrupa has thought of an exhibition that involves visitors and that experimenting with different languages to force and play with the boundaries of art.
