documenta fifteen takes place from June 18 to September 25, 2022, under the Artistic Direction of ruangrupa at various venues in Kassel, Germany. The Jakarta-based artists’ collective has built the foundation of documenta’s fifteenth edition on the core values and ideas of lumbung, the Indonesian term for a communal rice barn. lumbung as an artistic and economic model is rooted in principles such as collectivity, communal resource sharing, and equal allocation and is embodied in all parts of the collaboration and the exhibition. lumbung is the concrete practice adopted by ruangrupa and the Artistic Team, lumbung members and lumbung artists and all participants on the path towards documenta fifteen in 2022 and beyond.
