In this collective thought exercise, the group took lumbung in the form it is practiced within documenta fifteen as a starting point for reflecting on how imaginative institutionalism is being experimented with in different parts of the world. By combining practice with theory and reframing the latter as compost to fertilise crops from which to harvest institutional imaginaries, we sought to create the conditions for re-thinking the im/possible institutions we want to inhabit. In the latest publication ‘Mixtape No. 2: Practitheorising Counterinstitutions’ the moderators of the group present summaries on the results of each panel. These texts are accompanied by artworks by artists Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba and Diana Cantarey who visually map and conceptualise the ideas our invitees shared with us. The invitees to the panels were: Ann Stoler, Melani Budianta, Ilenia Caleo, Quinsy Gario, Paul Goodwin, Annie Jael Kwan, Lara Khaldi, Jeroen de Kloet, Wayne Modest, Christa-Maria Lerm Hayes, farid rakun (ruangrupa), Deborah Thomas, Ming Tiampo, Wet Hole Group (Nikita Kadan, Bogdana Kosmina, Alina Kleytman), and Mi You.
