The talk series will happen during the opening weekend of its fifthteens edition. Through the five talks, we want to take a moment to contemplate its radiance and impact it had on the formation and reception of Chinese contemporary art. Apart from the talk series, this summer, we will also present the publications of documenta one to fifteen. "documenta/b" will be held during the opening weekend of documenta fifteen (18th-19th Jun 2022) in Beijing. "documenta/b" is launched in Beijing by Anna-Viktoria Eschbach and Huang Wenlong in collaboration with art book in China. "b" stands for Beijing and it can also mean plan b. The participating art collectives will be invited to join our conversation and share their experience working with Ruangrupa, the curatorial team. Meanwhile, we have also invited artist Wang Youshen to share his perspective as someone who has participated in many international exhibitions starting from the 1990s. In addition, the researchers from China and Germany will provide insights on the debates and issues around this year’s concept, and how documenta is connected to building museum collections in Germany.documenta has developed into the world's most important exhibition series for contemporary art. As a medium of information about the latest tendencies in the international art scenes, it has documented and commented on all stages of western and later global understanding of art over the course of its history. In addition to the current status of artistic production, each documenta also reflects the status of the art-theoretical discourse. With its scenographic inventions at the various event locations, it sets references for the methods of staging art. Every documenta has to reinvent itself organizationally and conceptually. Since 1972, this task has been in the hands of changing artistic directors. This edition will be a first in the history of documenta with not one individual but a whole group of curators taking the lead, and it is also the first time that the artistic direction has come from Asia and also non-Western background.The talk series will happen during the opening weekend of its fifthteens edition. Through the five talks, we want to take a moment to contemplate its radiance and impact it had on the formation and reception of Chinese contemporary art.

▷ 13:00 - 14:00 Wang Youshen, participating artist of "Encountering the Others" during documenta nine
Many past cultural events have been central in defining the avant-garde and its progression within Chinese modernity to contemporary Chinese art in the late 1980s and 1990s. One crucial steppingstone being the presence of Chinese art in an exhibition in parallel with documenta IX in Kassel in 1992. On display were the artists Li Shan, Lu Shengzhong, Ni Hafeng, Sun Liang, Cai Guo-Qiang, Qiu Deshu, and Wang Youshen in the group exhibition "Encountering the Others - Projektgruppe Stoffwechsel" ("Projektgruppe Stoffwechsel" is the name of the curatorial team who aimed to broaden the perspective of documenta which had a North American-Eurocentric artist list.). A year later, Wang Youshen was part of the 45th Venice Biennale (1993) and it was the first time for Chinese artists to be presented in this biennale. From the decade of 1990 to 2000, Wang Youshen participated in international exhibitions almost annually. During this era, when the Internet was not common, the experience of participating in international exhibitions more or less conceptualised the way he thought about art. Wang Youshen will share insights drawn from his personal archive and memory of international exhibitions in the 1990s and the cultural shift in exhibition-making that positioned China on the map of documenta 30 years ago.

Wang Youshen (b.1964, Beijing), graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1988, currently works and lives in Beijing. He has participated in domestically and internationally influential biennials and institutional exhibitions, as well as exhibitions that held important positions in the history of Chinese contemporary art, such as "China / Avant Garde Exhibition", "New Generation Art Exhibition", La Biennale di Venezia, Bienal de São Paulo, Taipei Biennial, Guangzhou Triennial, Shanghai Biennial, etc. He is one of the important participants and witnesses of Chinese contemporary art. At the same time, Wang Youshen has worked in Beijing Youth Daily for 30 years from 1988 to 2018 and served as art editor, art director and other positions. All along, Wang Youshen has dual identities, working between the art world and the media world. He committed to investigating and loosening the rigescent boundaries between art/life, art practice/daily life.
Wang Youshen has his unique way of understanding and intervening in the duality of official/civilian, professional/amateur, art/reality, etc., which allows him to use the resources of two different systems to generate the possibilities of knowing himself and the surroundings. Wang Youshen presents us with the intensity, continuity and richness of an artist's practice. His practice is not only reflected at the level of artworks, but is constantly re-examining one's potential and limitations, and exploring possible forms of dialogues between art and the self, art and the world.

BOLOHO (BUBU, CAT, Li Xiaotian, Liu Di, Xie Siyan), participating artists of documenta fifteen
In this talk, BOLOHO will speak about their collective work in the framework of documenta fifteen. Their project is called "BOLOHOPE" which consists of the following two parts: they have created a sitcom and anime series that relate to BOLOHO members’ daily enviornment, their body experience, and their dilemmas and visions; they have used the collective practice of sewing, painting, design and textual materials to transform a restaurant in Hübner areal, one of documenta fifteen's exhibition space, into an installation and public space. The members of “BOLOHOPE” include: BUBU, CAT, Fong Waiking, He Cong, Li Xiaotian, Li Zhiyong, Liu Di, Xie Siyan, Zhu Jianlin.

BOLOHO was initiated by CAT and BUBU in 2019, with Zhu Jianlin, Li Zhiyong and Fong Weijing joining as members later. At beginning, BOLOHO was more like a business venture by BUBU and CAT, two home-based working women, and a place to get some air outside of home, where they could sort out their lives and work. After more than three years of work, the project has gradually developed into a "company" platform based on the principles of self-discipline, equality and mutual-aid, providing work for collaborators, friends like them who cannot make a living from art alone, and allowing them to better understand how to live and work together while taking jobs together, as well as providing the opportunity to think, discern and solve some of the real issues that they all face.
Reading Room is an independent publishing project initiated by writers and researchers Li Xiaotian, Liu Di and Xie Siyan, who are based in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Founded in 2019, Reading Room aims to introduce publications and ideas to a wider community of friends in multiple languages. Setting out from an active network of art collectives and cultural communities, their main publishing interests are in alternative economy, social practices, family and children’s life, comics and a variety of gender-friendly reading materials.
Cao Minghao & Chen Jianjun, participating artists of documenta fifteen
Cao Minghao & Chen Jianjun's artistic practice reflects on the historical changes and contemporary realities of the water system in the Dujiangyan Irrigation System in Sichuan Province. Since early February this year, they have been working intensively on preparing for this exhibition. They believe what has been constructed under this edition goes far beyond a traditional exhibition context. In their talk, they would share insights on what is new about documenta 15.

Cao Minghao and Chen Jianjun currently work and live in Chengdu. Their art practices are research-based and process-led, highlighting the transactional collaboration between the artists and their partners in ecological and socio-cultural spheres. Dedicated to the dialogical relationship between the realities and the survival of myriad things, their practices grow from a space of entanglement in-between the material ecology of water and the current socio-environmental realities of mankind.
Their work concerns researching villages that have disappeared and allying workers, advancing new methods of communal practices, foregrounding traditional techniques in specific geographies, and constructing Water System Refuge (2019–2021) – an installation for the public space. Practising multiple means of visual narratologies through sustainable art-making, they build up a momentum for alliance among all beings.
Their projects have been shown in the 13th Shanghai Biennale (2020–21); Cosmopolis #2: Repenser l’humain, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2019); and at the screening session of the 11th Taipei Biennale (2018), among others. In 2020, they took part in the residency program at Cité I'internationale des arts, Paris.
Zhang Yingying, art writer and independent curatordocumenta is an emblematic site of globalised, pluralist and non-commercial art practices. On the other hand, only a very limited number of Chinese artists have been selected into the game. Nowadays, visiting documenta has become a pilgrimage for Chinese artworkers, but only very few have studied it thoroughly before 2010 due to limited Internet access, lack of digital information dissemination and the enormous scale and complexity of the exhibition itself. Since 2012, Zhang Yingying has begun following documenta when she studied in the art school in China. In 2016, she launched a WeChat channel which has conducted over 130 posts about news, artists and works that are related to documenta exhibitions. Her initial reason behind this long-term project is rather straightforward - to understand what contemporary art is by observing one of the most phenomenal exhibitions in the 20/21st century. Throughout the years, she has not only gained knowledge about the artists and artworks, but she has also learned about the system of documenta and its cultural and historical context. When having a certain distance from the research target, one is more likely to obtain a comprehensive observation. In her talk, Zhang Yingying will deliver this year’s theme and the relevant topics and reviews within its historical lineage.
Zhang Yingying, writer and curator, researcher of documenta, selected curator of Emerging Curators Project of Power Station of Art in 2019, invited press of documenta fourteen in 2017, content curator of WeChat account "documenta". Wang Ziwei, currently based in Beijing, is an editor, writer, professional translator, and contemporary art event organizer. She graduated with an MA in Arts and Cultural Management from King's College London and has rich experiences working with contemporary art insitutions of various scale and kind. Her recent research interests include independant publication in China and East Asian identity and modernization.
Dierk Höhne, curator at Lenbachhaus Munich
In 1955 the first documenta took place in Kassel. For a long time, the 100 day exhibition was regarded as a reliable report on the status of the art of the time and has had a lasting influence on the collections of art museums in Germany. What was discussed, collected and exhibited was and is often initiated by the documenta. Today, the history of the documenta and its founding myth are viewed critically. It was also stripped of its status as "the most important exhibition of contemporary art in the western world" a long time ago. Through all the crises, the documenta has established itself as an institution and has constantly reinvented itself by defining new demands, tasks and strategies.
On the occasion of the 15th edition of the documenta 2022, the Lenbachhaus presents the exhibition "What's left of 100 days... - The documenta and the Lenbachhaus". Dierk Hoehne is one of the curators of this exhibition. He will give insight in the research of the afterlife of documenta and will show which works "from 100 days" remained visible in a museum collection.
Speaker's Bio:Dierk Höhne is a curator and writer. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
How can one look back on the past documenta editions? How can one compare and observe documenta’s historical significance and its transformation every 5 years? While every documenta had to reinvent itself organizationally and conceptually, one object that stays behind are the publications. The body of publications is the ideal medium to revisit the events and has become an archive in itself. At abC Art Book space we will present a selection of the publications from the first documenta in 1955 to the latest edition in 2022.
"documenta/b" is based in Beijing aiming to observe documenta from China. Meanwhile, in the sites of documenta fifteen in Kassel, there will be a series of talks for youth in Germany to learn from Chinese self-organised art groups. The tandem talks are developed under the program "camp ON VACATION" of the "No Measurement Group" in the context of "CAMP notes on education" in the ruruHaus and the Hafenstraße 76. Zoom link will be updated on www.camp-on-vacation.com.
No measurement group attempts to address inequalities in the art system and to develop concrete strategies to negotiate and transform them. As an alternative to these established hierarchies, they form an autonomous network with their friends, collaborators and supporters. The network of relationships is the starting point for a rhizome-like growing social body that includes people and offers participation in the sense of a bottom-up strategy.
