Seven short stories in one anthology
Whether “tequio” in Mexico, “ubuntu” in South Africa, or “mutirão” in Brazil “lumbung” in Indonesia or “auzolan” in Basque Country; there are many names for the common good around the world: Within the context of documenta fifteen and its core idea of collectivity, seven novelists – Azhari Aiyub, Cristina Judar, Nesrine A. Khoury, Mithu Sanyal, Panashe Chigumadzi, Uxue Alberdi, and Yásnaya Elena Aguilar Gil – from different parts of the world will contribute new narratives on collective work and communal forms, blurring the lines between realism and fiction, the past and the future. Eight international publishers have also joined forces to provide this global perspective on the exhibition theme in various language editions.
This is a proposal made by the Basque publisher consonni that has coordinated it. Bringing together 8 publishing houses and 7 writers, each writing in a different language, lumbung stories is a true product of communal action. consonni and Almadia publishing houses publish in Spanish, Brazilian Dublinense in Portuguese, Marjin Kiri in Indonesian, Hatje Cantz in German, Al Mutawassit in Arabic, Txalaparta in Basque and Cassava Republic Press in English.
