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.
