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 project “A Cultural Agent for documenta 14” was initiated in Hesse in collaboration with Juliane Gallo in September of 2016. Its goal is to inspire curiosity about documenta 14 among children and adolescents, to strengthen documenta’s collaboration with schools, and provide more information about the history and the importance of the exhibitions since their beginning in 1955.

Prof. Dr. Nora Sternfeld (b. 1976) has been named the new documenta professor at Kunsthochschule Kassel. The Austrian scholar currently holds a professorship at Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland.
