The Earth Beneath/ Die Erde darunter

Erde Workshop #3 & #4

Visual artist and designer Cam-Anh Luong and palaeontologist and evolutionary biologist Roland Sookias will give a workshop on the topic of geology and forming of landscapes.

Why is Berlin so flat? Why do mountains exist? Why are there earthquakes? What forms volcanoes? Join this hands-on workshop to learn where the landscape around you comes from, and how geology shapes our everyday lives. You will work with sand, clay, stones, water, as well as sound and various mediums to get deep into the history of the local landscape.

The workshops focus on artistic practice in connection with ecology and sustainability. These events turn the Strandbad into a unique outdoor laboratory, open to all.

Artists’ Statement in Support of ruangrupa
Lumbung Community Statement

We, the lumbung community (the artists and members of documenta fifteen), add our collective voices in support of the letter that was published on May 7 by ruangrupa, the artistic team of documenta fifteen, and some curators of the failed forum “We Need to Talk! Art – Freedom – Solidarity,” in response to the ripple effects of the false accusations of anti-Semitism made against some members of this lumbung community.

Since that time there has been further racist activity against us, and it has crossed over from the digital space into our physical spaces. On May 28, the exhibition and living spaces of documenta were broken into and defaced with what can only be interpreted as a death threat. This is a very worrying escalation of the situation that began almost six months ago here in Kassel.

We are united against the racist attacks that started this sequence of events. And we stand firmly against all forms of discrimination, including racist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, sexist, transphobic, anti-Muslim, anti-Palestinian, anti-Roma, ableist, casteist, classist, and ageist actions and attacks.

We also express our dismay and disappointment at the amplification that the original baseless blog post of disinformation and manipulated content received in some of the mainstream media. We denounce the media participation in these smear campaigns.

We invite you to read the May 7 letter from ruangrupa here. We look forward to seeing you during the hundred days of documenta fifteen.
