Care.Cure.Curate: un viaggio verbale da leggere tutto d’un fiato ma anche una curva sonora non puramente melodica che raccoglie in un breve segmento un caleidoscopio di declinazioni possibili della parola cura.

Documenta 15 is no ordinary art exhibition. Working with the guiding concept of “lumbung,” the Indonesian collective ruangrupa―the exhibition’s curators―are less concerned with individual works than with models of collaborative practice. This guide offers insights into and orientation for the processes that evolved in the creation of the exhibition. A comprehensive resource both for visitors of Documenta in Kassel and anyone interested in collective practices, this guide presents all the collectives and artists featured in Documenta 15 through in-depth profiles by international authors. Taking the question “what is lumbung?” as an organizing principle, the book offers an introduction to the concept and cultural background of Documenta 15, with documents and photographs tracing the collectives’ working processes. A chapter surveying the show’s locations in Kassel, as well as a large fold-out map and an introduction to the exhibition’s public program, are also included.
