For Luma Days #2, “Hospitality: Searching for common ground," artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, and architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller have developed a new version of their ongoing project DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY. In the logic of an exquisite corpse the pavilion can be seen as a disembodied part of the future artist residency and workshop at The Land, a self-sustaining artistic community initiated by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Kamin Lertchaiprasert near Chiang Mai in Thailand that engages with the idea of an artistic utopia, presenting an ecological and sustainable model for future artistic practice. Reminiscent of a Surrealist "exquisite corpse"—beginning with a single contribution that continues to grow piecemeal—various architects, engineers, and artists will contribute different building components (such as structure, façade etc) to this unusual architectural assemblage as a collective work.

After its first manifestation at Art Basel in 2015 and at the Garden Triennale in Aarhus in 2017 the new version of the building in Arles will be comprised of an open-air kitchen, a herbal garden and a communal dining area where visitors can eat, drink and relax in a convivial atmosphere, while engaging in discussions and investigations about practices of sustainability, the geopolitics of food, and building technologies in the era of the Anthropocene.

The project stands on the continuation of numerous conversations among artists on the topics of urbanization in a post-rural condition, the act of building as a collaborative process, and land as a concept that can exist outside of ownership. Through DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY, Tiravanija, Hirsch and Müller speak to The Land’s objectives relating to improvisation, collaboration, and the questioning of institutional structures.

Luma Days is a yearly forum of art and ideas. It kicks off Luma’s summer program in May with a week filled with public events, conferences, workshops, displays and installations. This year, the central theme is Hospitality: Searching for Common Ground and involves Kader Attia, Daniel Birnbaum, Jan Boelen, Benjamin Boudou, Maryse Condé, Manthia Diawara, Elsa Dorlin, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez- Foerster, Maja Hoffmann, Arthur Jafa, Sandi Hilal, Léonora Miano, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Paul B. Preciado, Anjalika Sagar and many others.
