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

Platform6 is a constantly growing online project and a place for lively debates about Documenta11 and its ideas. It gathers historical materials from the documenta archiv and current contributions by artists, curators, and Enwezor's companions that address themes of solidarity, globalization, and collectivity.

"Reculer pour mieux sauter (looking back to look forward)" was a leitmotif for Enwezor's work at Documenta11 (2002). As early as 2011, his co-curators Ute Meta Bauer, Mark Nash, and project manager Angelika Nollert joined him in considering a possible future platform. After Enwezor's untimely death in 2019, they approached the documenta archiv with the vision that could now be realized as an online homage.
