Khoj invited ruangrupa curator Mirwan Andan and Jeebesh Bagchi from Raqs Media Collective to explore strategies and frameworks around exhibiting community engagement as an artistic methodology, in tandem with our ongoing exhibition ‘Threading the Horizon : Propositions on Worldmaking through socially engaged art practice’.
Mirwan and Jeebesh’s talk unpacked a few of the following;
- the enframings of Documenta Fifteen – the geo-political context, artist ecosystems and the lumbung
- who is a lumbung artist?
- the concept of ‘inviting’ of artists as opposed to ‘selecting’
- the funding structures of Documenta Fifteen
