Starting on Saturday, June 19th, 2021, guests can visit the Survival Room of the "Kassel-21 / Social Sculpture Lab" at the Neue Galerie in Kassel in the year of Beuys' anniversary. The participatory project takes Joseph Beuys' "Social Sculpture" into the present: developed by artist Shelley Sacks in collaboration with the documenta archiv and the Museumslandschaft Hessen Kassel, it is a global laboratory that offers visitors the opportunity to engage with Beuys' expanded concept of art and its potential for the future both online and on site in Kassel.

The documenta archiv is pleased to present you the virtual Platform6 in honor of Okwui Enwezor via the link www.documenta-platform6.de starting today.

In memory of Manfred Schneckenburger, art historian and two-time director of documenta, who died in 2019, a monument was inaugurated in the Künstler-Nekropole Kassel. It was designed by the artist and long-time friend of Schneckenburger Ugo Dossi.

On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Joseph Beuys under the name BEUYSLABORKASSEL2021, exhibitions, actions, performances and conferences will take place until the end of the year in honor of one of the most influential contemporary artists and seven-time documenta participant.
