The documenta archiv is committed to recording and preserving the “memory” of the documenta, one of the most important exhibitions on contemporary art worldwide.
Auditorium of the Kunsthochschule Kassel, Menzelstrasse 13–15
Half a century ago, the appointment to the directorial team of documenta was a particular honor. With documenta 5, the first of two exhibitions in which Klaus Honnef participated, this was to change: now professional deferment rather than career advancement; questions, problems, and contradictions instead of aesthetic certainties.
Goethe Institute, Athens
documenta 14 will take place in Athens from April 8 to July 16, 2017. On this occasion, the Goethe Institut will invites the public of Athens to take a look at documenta with its history of over 60 years.
The documenta archiv gets a new image with a web presence, logo, and -custom typography developed by the Stuttgart Design Agency L2M3.
The photographer Hans Braun (b. 1952) took a snapshot in the year of the documenta 7 (d7). An inscription was applied to a work by the American artist Donald Judd (1928-1994). The piece was installed in a public space. A passer-by, possibly a visitor of the d7 is seen in the right corner of the picture looking at the characters on the art piece.
