Composting Knowledge workshop

Location: Nordstadtpark Boreal stage and on Zoom

Languages: English


During the second Meydan weekend friends participating in the Composting Knowledge Network will gather and reflect upon the processes which have been taking place in the context of the ongoing experimental platform which aims to “compost” the practices of friends participating and individual ingredients brought to our “Open Bin” for producing knowledge. With the presence of Composting Knowledge at Kulturzentrum Schlachthof the processes of compost will be translated in public context.

An open invitation, a series of gatherings which will be held in organic and spontaneous form according to Compost and its growth. Composting invites friends and public participating to the Meydan #2 program of documenta fifteen and 24th Kassel World Music Festival at Kulturzentrum Schlachthof to join us for reflecting together about processes, ingredients, fermentations which the group has been activating during the past seasons.

The invitation is open, the members of Composting Knowledge wish to acknowledge practices, ingredients existing and expand the platform by composting with the interactions and dialogues held with the public at this particular summer time.
