DOCUMENTA FIFTEEN | Quynh Dong (Nhà Sàn Collective) being invited to Documenta Fifteen

documenta fifteen, June 18, 2022
Nhà Sàn Collective (NSC) began operating as an independent artist collective in Hanoi in 2013, when a group of friends set up a publicly accessible space. With or without a physical base, NSC has worked with fellow companions and collaborators to organize exhibitions, workshops, film screenings, talks, and other activities as a support platform for artists in the community. The initiative wants to encourage exchange, expansion, and connection.
For documenta fifteen, Nhà Sàn Collective traces a metaphorical connection from a Vietnamese bến (harbor) to the Fulda. By the river in Kassel, two performance installations stage the arrival of the playground installation. The collective also invites visitors to join them in cultivating a garden of migratory plants and narratives, joyful companionship inside a Queer House with a sauna, with the celebratory imbibement of rice-based street food and homemade wine, along with screenings, discussions, and workshops. Quynh Dong's video work will be at WH22 in the garden. 
Daily from 10 am to 8 pm
