DOCUMENTA 14

Die Eule als visuelles Motiv der documenta 14, Kassel und Athen 2017

The documenta takes place every five years in Kassel. The event is the world's most important exhibition of contemporary art. Since 1955 every documenta has been a unique undertaking, and the documenta 14 in 2017 will continue in this tradition.

Under the working title "Learn from Athens" (“Von Athen lernen”), the event’s artistic director, Adam Szymczyk, will create a change concept that is consistent with the event’s change in location. For the first time in its history, the documenta is taking place in two locations: in Athens, where it was opened on April 8th, and in Kassel, where it will be held from June 10th to September 17th. The show will last for 100 days each in both cities and can be seen in parallel for one month. Instead of participating in on single event, the documenta 14 invites its participating artists to work in both locations, and thus brings North Hessen together with Greece, North together with South, and Europe together with the world.

Within the city Kassel, the event connects unknown and unusual places in the fascinating Nordstadt quarter with the traditional exhibition Locations:
