Documenta fifteen is the 15th edition of documenta, a contemporary art exhibition held in Kassel, Germany between June and September 2022. Documenta is a major contemporary art exhibition held every five years in Kassel, Germany.

I participated in Documenta15 as a co-organiser and researcher in the Power to the Commons! Assembly; an ongoing collaborative project developed through a collaboration of arts initiatives in Latin America and Africa within lumbung artists Arts Collaboratory. The project seeks ways of practicing the commons within artistic forms while understanding the specificities of the commons rooted in our various contexts. On the occasion of documenta fifteen the Power to the commons assembly gathers together a series of projects and peoples all concerned with imagining, creating, and theorizing the commons from the global south.
