the activation of a field / fields of (in)activities

PLANE C During the 100 days of dOCUMENTA (13), AND AND AND will be hosting and organizing an open and experimental public program with artists, activists, farmers, students, thinkers, residents, and visitors from Kassel and beyond. This program will interweave philosophical, poetical, political, practical, pedagogical, psychical, and physical zones of inquiry in one space/time. It is grounded in a conviction that, today, all fields of human activity must critically re-examine the values, assumptions, and modalities of doing.

- How do contemporary distributions of roles and competencies reproduce, every day, systems which are creating immense harm, inequality, and destroying the common bases of life?

- How to instead produce cultures of the common(s)?

- What kinds of refusals and revocations are called for?

- What practices could engender and support non-capitalist life?

All of the conversations, learn-ins, un-workshops, and other in-activities which take as their horizon these three notions—common(s), revocation, non-capitalist life—are informed and anchored by the previous interventions, situations, and occurrences which took shape on PLANES A & B.
PLANE B commoning in kassel

commoning in kassel
Brief 1
Brief 2

* Commoning is an action not an object. It indicates that there is something to be done together. It also indicates that the common(s) is what is produced in struggle, through the emergence of new social relations and practices. What ideas and projects can we imagine initiating and taking part in, in Kassel and elsewhere which link to the growing struggles for the common(s). How can we find our allies, friends, in the city and beyond?

PLANE A AND AND AND is an artist run initiative, which has used the time between 2010 and dOCUMENTA (13) in 2012 to consider with individuals and groups across the world the role art and culture can play today and the constituent publics or communities which could be addressed. The series of interventions, situations, and occurrences entitled AND AND AND are part of dOCUMENTA (13) and compose a map of emergent positions, concerns, and possible points of solidarity.

PLANE A questions and responses



What is it that we are capable of sharing and can we construct a common space or a common time for thinking about common concerns?


This term means to introduce critical relations to existing forms of thinking, working, acting, doing, and living.


Why is it easier to imagine the destruction of the planet than an end to Capitalism? Can we explore together the potential for non-capitalist life? What does it look like, sound like, feel like, move like, taste like?
