Neue Galerie, Kassel

Bauhaus and documenta are two globally successful cultural brands that stand for a cosmopolitan, innovative and modern Germany.

It is with great sorrow that we have learnt of the passing of Okwui Enwezor, the artistic director of documenta 11, who took the world art exhibition on a new path with his work here in Kassel.

Nominated unanimously by the International Finding Committee the Supervisory Board appointed ruangrupa, a collective of artists and creatives from Jakarta, Indonesia, with a tenmember core as the artistic direction of documenta 15.

A photograph by Dieter Schwerdtle from 1982 shows the artistic director of documenta 7, Rudi Fuchs, with one of his artists, Ulrich Rückriem, in a closely entwined pose.
