The Rural School of Economics is a travelling classroom to connect and share local knowledge made in rural communities across Europe, and the school uses drawing as to note, recognise, show and share knowledge. In Kassel the school connected local women-led organisations and guests and partners from elsewhere.
Drawing and redrawing the diverse and plural economies of organisations was an important part, and documenta itself was organised as a collective practice and economy: “Lumbung” which is an Indonesian word for a collectively managed rice barn.
The Rural School of Economics is initiated by Myvillages. For more information visit the website.
