KITCHEN BROADCAST | How to share the practice of Lumbung
How to share the practice of Lumbung is the third (and first live) episode of Kitchen Broadcast, an ongoing online conversation, listening to different voices, rhythms and sounds that reflect contemporary situations crossing their path in Brussels, composed by Joachim Ben Yakoub & Reem Shilleh.
Gathered around the microphones are Iswanto Hartono from ruangrupa; Reinaart Vanhoe from Ook_collectif; Noemie from El Warcha; Mohanad Yakubi and Reem Shilleh from Subversive film and the Kitchen; Noor Abed, artist and curatorial assistant for documenta fifteen; and Joachim Ben Yakoub from the Kitchen. Together they took the time to reflect on the question ‘How to share the practice of Lumbung?’.
For documenta fifteen, ruangrupa introduced lumbung as a practice, not only during but also leading up to and beyond the 100 days of the exhibition. After being invited to do the artistic direction of documenta fifteen, the collective, in turn, invited documenta to be part of its ecosystem. The practice of lumbung enables an alternative economy of collectivity, shared resource building, and equitable distribution. It is anchored in the local and based on values such as humour, generosity, independence, transparency, sufficiency, and regeneration.
