The artist list for the 2022 edition of Documenta has been revealed by its curators, the art collective ruangrupa – the news was announced in the German magazine Asphalt, published in support of the poor and homeless.
So far the curators have named 51 artists and collectives included in the show, slated to open on 18 June 2022. Participating artists have been grouped into ‘mini-majelis’ (after the Indonesian word for ‘council’). The nationalities of the artists have also been omitted – replaced by their respective time zones.
Participants include Hamja Ahsan, Jimmie Durham, Asia Art Archive, Black Quantum Futurism and The Nest Collective.
