documenta fifteen has now become a member of the Action Network Sustainability in Culture and Media (Aktionsnetzwerk Nachhaltigkeit in Kultur und Medien — ANKM). Partners such as Deutscher Bühnenverein, Deutscher Kulturrat and Kulturveranstaltungen des Bundes in Berlin GmbH are already part of the ANKM, which is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Minister of State Monika Grütters.
As Dr. Sabine Schormann, General Director of documenta und Museum Fridericianum gGmbH confirmed at the KulturInvest Congress in Potsdam on November 27, 2020, documenta fifteen will be involved in the action network and will support its aims: “Sustainability in culture and media is a basic concern of ruangrupa. The curatorial approach of documenta fifteen is aimed at a community-oriented model of resource use — economically, but also in terms of ideas, knowledge, programs, and innovations. Principles such as collectivity and collaboration, resource development and fair distribution are driving forces here. ruangrupa aims to create a globally oriented, cooperative, and interdisciplinary art and cultural platform that will remain effective beyond the 100 days of documenta fifteen.”
About the Action Network Sustainability in Culture and Media
The Action Network Sustainability in Culture and Media offers a central, cross-disciplinary contact point themed around operational ecology in culture and media. Exemplary pilot projects are supported and the results are documented and communicated. The vision: a creative, climate-neutral, and sustainable cultural and media landscape as part of the German government’s 2030 climate protection goals, the Paris 1.5° Agreement, and the 17 Sustainability Goals of the United Nations.
