Exhibition walks

Walks and Stories

What do we learn from documenta fifteen? How do we learn collectively? How can we actively engage?

For the Walks and Stories the art mediators sobat-sobat accompany the visitors on tours through the exhibitions. Together they explore and experience spaces, stories, and practices of lumbung. Friendship and narratives are the focus here.

sobat-sobat is an Indonesian word meaning friends. As friends, the sobat-sobat accompany visitors and artists during the 100 days of the exhibition. They are an active and creative part of lumbung knowledge. Together with the participants, they experience encounters, build bridges, and discover new approaches. In dialogue and through the practice of storytelling, they unfold the cosmology of lumbung knowledge. Using large and small narratives, the sobat-sobat connect places, people, conditions, and experiences with each other and accompany through the exhibitions of documenta fifteen.

ruangrupa invited local and international collectives and artists to transform lumbung into real experiences. In dialogue with the sobat-sobat, participants get to know the invited artists and collectives and learn more about their artistic practice. The guests of documenta fifteen are invited to contribute their own resources of knowledge and experience, share them and make them available to others. With this culture of participation and involvement, the visitors enrich lumbung during the 100 days and become an active part of documenta fifteen themselves.
