The documenta, which is held every five years, is a seismograph of developments in contemporary art. For the first time, this edition is curated by a group of artists, ruangrupa from Indonesia.

Central is the lumbung (Indonesian term for a communal rice barn). Lumbung as an artistic and economic model is rooted in principles such as collectivity, communal resource sharing, sustainability and equal allocation.

Noted for her enthusiasm and expertise, curator Anne Berk will give you insight in the concept of this documenta, and show you a selection of the most important works. Tours will be followed by a shared dinner and stimulating discussions.
