With the establishment of a new reading room for all three departments – records and papers; media collections and art library – the visitors of the documenta archiv will get the opportunity to stay longer to carry out their research.

The media collection of the documenta archives, together with students of the art academy, was able to realize a properly comprehensive documentation of documenta 14 in Kassel. For good reasons, a documentation project such as this must be carefully planned and strive to achieve maximum objectivity, necessary distance and formal rigor.
