Rirkrit Tiravanija - The Land

A lecture and a workshop

Initiated in 1998, the land (more direct translation from Thai to English would be, the rice field) was the merging of ideas by different artists to cultivate a place of and for social engagement.

Though initially the action to acquire the rice fields were initiated by two artists from Thailand, the land was initiated with anonymity and without the concept of ownership. The land was to be cultivated as an open space, though with certain intentions towards community, towards discussions and towards experimentation in other fields of thoughts.
