On the occasion of the Beuys anniversary, the documenta archiv, as a guest of the Museumslandschaft Hessen Kassel, is curating a studio exhibition on the photographer Dieter Schwerdtle (1952-2009) in the rooms of the Neue Galerie.

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.

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.
