What is Documenta?
During Documenta Fifteen in Kassel, LIK and the Moving School will host the Postinstitutional Café, which will explore new scenarios and chances for learning and education outside of traditional educational systems and institutions.
The City of Kassel and the State of Hesse, as well as the German Federal Cultural Foundation, sponsor and fund Documenta und Museum Fridericianum gGmbH, a non-profit organization.
Documenta has always been at the forefront of pushing the worldwide art conversation in new directions. Documenta has established itself as an institution that goes well beyond a review of current events over the years, attracting the attention of the worldwide art community every five years for its "museum of 100 days." The rhetoric and dynamics of debate around each Documenta reflect and challenge societal assumptions about art and culture.
The Indonesian collective ruangrupa will organize Documenta fifteen in Kassel from June 18 to September 25, 2022. The collective's method of operation is based on an alternative, community-oriented model of ecological, social, and economic sustainability, in which resources, ideas, and information, as well as social involvement, are shared. The concept of sustainability is also taken into account in the exhibition planning process in all of its forms.
Education at The Post-Institutional Café
The Königs-Galerie Kassel will host the Post-institutional Café. A community-driven collaborative place for rethinking the future of education systems, exploring alternative learning options throughout the world, and connecting great minds to build new learning models for future generations.
This international café will be a meeting point for global conversations with interesting learning and educational initiatives from around the world in 4 different spaces:
A Conversation Bar: where our barman will host you and have deep personal talks about your experiences with education and learning in your life
A Playroom: where you will be able to build your own learning or educational model based on global experiences
A Public Forum for talks with global pioneers: where you will meet and participate in virtual and physical talks with experts from around the world
A Reading Room: to focus on documents, books, catalogs, and videos that show learning at it best.
Get ready to taste the greatest coffee ever and explore new formats of learning and information transfer. This conversational residency will collect concepts as jigsaw pieces for educators to develop their own personalised and local models using streaming and social media.
The thematic focus for this year's edition will be education, how educational systems are collapsing, the commoditization of education and training, and how a more collaborative, perhaps community-based educational system and learning experiences are possible.
We will reflect on how in recent years, events like the COVID19 pandemic have forced many educational systems to review their purpose and mechanism, how parents have realised the importance of their participation in their children´s education, and how we as adults are capable of training ourselves when we have the mental space for it.
Several questions arise around this exercise: Are universities and colleges doing their best for you to learn what you need? Does your training mean you will get a better job or be more prepared to run your business or life? Which skills and knowledge do you really need and want? Is the educational system fair to the potential of professors, researchers, and teachers? Does paying thousands for a course make sense when all you get is networking?.
The schedule and format of the Post-Institutional Café consist of international experts talks, collective participation, and hands-on workshops (where teams of participants develop analyses and conclusions about these topics. A collection of ideas and concepts that emerge from these conversations as pieces of a puzzle that you can play with, in our playroom and later wherever you are to build your own educational model for the future.
