documenta 4 (1968) was advertised as the "youngest documenta ever". In retrospect, however, it appears less visionary than expected and her artistic position weakened by democratization processes.

We offer you a guided tour to our exhibition "In the documenta archiv #3 - Journey to the Planet Ars - artist portraits by Heinz Günter Mebusch".

Since the 1990s the documenta archiv owns an important collection of over 200 high-quality photographic artist portraits.

The documenta archiv has just received the personal papers of Dirk Schwarze (1942 – 2017), art critic and long standing head of the cultural section of the Kassel daily newspaper HNA.

In 1980, the artist Gunter Demnig (born 1947) laid down his scented trace "DUFTMARKEN CASSEL - PARIS DEMNIG 80" from the Kunsthochschule Kassel to the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
