ruangrupa: "We want to create a globally oriented, collaborative and interdisciplinary art and culture platform that will remain effective beyond the 100 days of documenta fifteen. Our curatorial approach strives for a different kind of collaborative model of resource use - in economic terms but also with regard to ideas, knowledge, programs and innovations."

ruangrupa has based documenta fifteen upon the values and ideas of lumbung. lumbung, which directly translate as "rice barn", refers to a communal building in rural Indonesia where a community's harvest is gathered, stored and distributed according to jointly determined criteria as a pooled resource for the future. As a concrete practice, lumbung is the starting point of documenta fifteen: principles of collectivity, resource building and equitable distribution are pivotal to the curatorial work and impact the entire process - the structure, self-image and appearance of documenta fifteen.
