The documenta archiv is the main lender for a large exhibition on the history of the documenta showing almost 600 objects in an exhibition space of 1500 square meters. Four sections illustrate the idea, understanding, and form of artistic production and realization through time and societal transformation. Features in the exhibition include a prologue about Arnold Bode as the founder, maker, and inspiration of the early years of documenta, and — as a living epilogue — a laboratory for the history and practice of arts education. The exhibition was curated by Prof. Klaus Siebenhaar and Prof. Yu Ding.

An exhibition organized by the Institute of Arts and Media Management at Freie Universität Berlin and the Institute for Art Administration and Education at the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) Beijing, Chaoyang District, South Street, in cooperation with the documenta archiv.
