Exchange of experiences: Learning from lumbung one

  • Free

Documenta fifteen – or 'lumbung one', as ruangrupa calls it – came to an end in September 2022. However, the idea of the rice barn "lumbung" and the various alternative approaches continue to have an impact on artistic, education and curatorial practices. What can we (un)learn from "lumbung one"? How can these approaches be translated into our own mediation practice? We would like to discuss these and further questions in workshop with you at Kunsthalle Zurich.

Chiara Giardi and Desirée Hieronimus worked as sobat-sobat at documenta fifteen alongside their studies in the Master Art Education, Curatorial Studies. sobat-sobat (sing. sobat) means something like friends/companions in Bahasa Indonesia, but it was also the name given to the art educators working for the education department at documenta fifteen (May–September 2022). They will share their experience as sobat-sobat and together, we aim to compost knowledge and practices rooted in friendship and collectivity in art education.

Their knowledge currently flows into the seminar 'Learning from lumbung one' in the spring semester 2023, which was developed in collaboration with Seline Fülscher, Head of Mediation at Kunsthalle Zurich and Bruno Heller, Research Assistant in the Master Art Education Curatorial Studies. The seminar will end with an open majelis (~ gathering / meeting), which is conceived as an exchange of experiences for interested art and culture mediators. We would like to invite you to this event. The exchange of experiences is open to the public and will take place on April 14, 2023, 4-6 pm, followed by an apéro.

Registration by mail to bruno.heller [​at​] is required for participation.
