Ruangrupa, an Indonesian artists’ cooperative made up of 10 members has been appointed to curate the 2022 edition of Documenta in Kassel.
Philippe Pirotte, a member of the eight-person search committee, at a press conference today sated, “We have appointed Ruangrupa because they have demonstrated the ability to appeal to various communities, including groups that go beyond pure art audiences, and to promote local commitment and participation. Their curatorial approach is based on an international network of local community-based art organisations.”
Ruangrupa members Farid Rakun and Ade Darmawan say they intend to work with the Kassel community and focus on the town itself, as well as links with other sites.
