I’m returning to Documenta fifteen for Alice Yard, one of the selected art collectives, to work with the next 2nd and 3rd artists in residence Luis Vasquez la Roche and La Impresora (Nicole Delgado & Amanda Hernandez).
Alice Yard is a contemporary art space and network. Alice Yard is managed and curated by architect Sean Leonard, artist Christopher Cozier, writer, and editor Nicholas Laughlin, and designer Kriston Chen in collaboration with an evolving growing international network of artists, curators, and other creative partners.
In Documenta there are always four artists/art professionals at work, in addition, to successively Leonard (June), Cozier (July/August), Chen (August/September), and Laughlin (September), simultaneously successively nine artists in residence: Blue Curry, Louis Vasques Le Roche, Nicole Cecilia Delgado & Amanda Hernandez (La Impresora), Shannon Alonzo, Versia Harris, Michelle Eistrup, Bruce Cayonne, and Ada M. Patterson. In addition, a partly ad hoc group of up to 2 artists and/or art professionals such as myself, Richard Fung, Jina Yimenez, Natalie Josten, Patricia Encarnacion, Russel Campbell, Kenny Bailey, Richard Williams, Razia Barsati, Tessa Mars, Irenee Shaw, Anders Juhl, Clara Brandt, Magda Buczek, Raquel Vasques La Roche, and Oneika Russell.
Alice Yard stays in WH22 where they have 2 presenting spaces and accommodation (4 rooms) all on the 1st floor. In WH22 the artists in residence present their work as well as  Out of Place: works by artists that are not in Kassel but send scores that will be executed to the Artists in Residence on site: Marlon Griffith, Heino Schmidt, Engel Leonardo,  and more to come..
Over the 100 days, they will also be present in Trafohaus (Toofprints / Richard Williams), Lumbung Press (La improsora), and Grimmwelt museum (permanent animation by Versia Harris, one-off intervention by Blue Curry, and performance by Luis Vasquez la Roche), and
On-site Port of Spain (POS) programming i.e. Live Streams between POS and Kassel, a performance by Sue Lynn Choo (let that be your cautionary tale), and more to come.

Curator/artistic director
The artist collective ruangrupa from Jakarta Indonesia is the artistic director of the fifteenth edition of Documenta. The norms, values, and ideas of Lumbung (Indonesian term for a common rice barn) are the foundation of this edition. The practices of the fourteen selected art collectives and artists are based on principles such as collectivity, common distribution of resources, and equal allocation.
