Artists, collectives, initiatives and organizations selected to participate in documenta fifteen

Following their concept of lumbung and its values of solidarity, collectivity, and fair distribution, on 1st October 2021 the members of ruangrupa have announced a preliminary list of 54 artists and collectives who will participate in documenta fifteen.

For launching these first names, ruangrupa chose the street magazine "Asphalt" from Hanover. "Asphalt" is sold by homeless and other socially disadvantaged people in the area of Kassel, Hanover, Göttingen and other cities in Lower Saxony and Hesse and is official media partner of documenta fifteen.

The selected creative participants (artists, collectives, initiatives, organizations active in different timezones) are grouped in majelis, an Indonesian term derived from Arabic for a gathering or meeting. For ruangrupa majelis are an important tool to exchange ideas and projects between artists, lumbung members and other participants of documenta fifteen.

Each mini-majelis-group will have to a great extent its own organization and will be given a budget to decide on together.
