Project Credit invites you to HARVEST (intentional sharing of learnings) – an informal evening gathering organised by MA curatorial students as part of this year's Central Saint Martin’s x Credit cohort. It explores global art exhibition, Documenta fifteen*, and mediums of collective publication for social change.

We welcome the audience to help us connect learnings from Documenta fifteen, Kassel to a localised London setting. Values introduced by artistic directors, Indonesian collective ruangrupa (which loosely means “a space for art”), aim to prioritise the process and people in making, above product outcome – can you divide the two?

HARVEST is the third event in MA CCC x Credit’s public programming introducing Documenta to a London audience. This follows LUMBUNG, Paradise Row, and Love Language, hARTslane Gallery. MA CCC x Project Credit has collaborated since 2019 by interrogating traditional forms of curating related to social and environmental issues. Credit aims to be an active resource challenging aspects of art structures that produce inequity and inequality.


*Documenta is an influential global art exhibition that occurs every 5 years in Kassel, Germany. It was introduced by Arnold Bode, in an attempt to unify Germany through modern art post-WWII. The 2022 appointment of ruangrupa as artistic directors of Documenta fifteen was the first time a collective had held this position, and the first time Documenta was under the care of Southeast Asian artists.

Ruangrupa uses socially familiar terms to describe artistic production, emphasising the necessity to connect with others to sustain creative work. Lumbung (Indonesian for ‘rice barn’) is ruangrupa’s core value: a place for sharing surplus resources for communal gain. Nongkrong (an Indonesian word for ‘hanging out’) aims to promote common spaces as fertile ground for fruitful conversations and connections.
