At the clousure of documenta fifteen
As part of the end of documenta fifteen we want to express our gratitude for the complicity and the collective work that the development of our programme has meant for us. For the wonderful contributions of our guests and participants in each space. For the friends we were able to make in the process and who joined this initiative to create spaces for dialogue and affection, and for those who opened the doors of their processes and invited us to be part of them and get to know them.
We first thank ruangrupa and the artistic team for the warmth of their loving hosting and the whole production team, especially Gertrude, Jara, Thomas, Kira, Erich, Hannah, Carim. As well as to each of the collectives and artists lumbung members for the dialogues, the collective effort and the strength of their convictions in the midst of such difficult days.
To Atelier Van Lieshout for their contributions and also to each of the collectives, participants and guests of the MAMA programme for their willingness to be part of and co-creators of spaces full of contributions and reflections.
We also thank the friends who joined us on this journey, Mateo Chacón for being our guide, friend and an exceptional collaborator in the activities in Kassel. To all the friends of the Espora collective in Kassel for their constant help and affection, to Jonathan Ospina for his collaboration in the difficult work of interpretation. To the team of CELA and UniKassel for the Summer School, which was a valuable challenge for our process. To our exceptional Summer School participants for the generosity of their contributions.
We hope to continue co-creating with all of you and to meet again soon, because the lumbung continues!
