The documenta 14 is the four­teenth edi­tion of the art ex­hi­bi­tion documenta and takes place in 2017 in both Kassel, Ger­many its tra­di­tional home, and Athens, Greece. Its Athens edi­tion was held from 8 April till 16 July, and from 10 June it has been in Kassel, where it will be open till 17 Septem­ber 2017. As part of the con­cept of its artis­tic di­rec­tor Adam Szym­czyk the ex­hi­bi­tion will pro­ceed in both coun­tries. The artists should work with and on both lo­ca­tions.

Each documenta takes its char­ac­ter from the ideas and con­cept of its Artis­tic Di­rec­tor, and is there­fore not only a fo­rum for cur­rent trends in con­tem­po­rary art, but a place where in­no­va­tive and stan­dards-set­ting ex­hi­bi­tion con­cepts are tri­aled. In each edi­tion, documenta has played a lead­ing role in tak­ing the in­ter­na­tional dis­course about art in new di­rec­tions. Over the past decades, documenta has es­tab­lished it­self as an in­sti­tu­tion that goes far be­yond a survey of what is cur­rently hap­pen­ing, invit­ing the at­ten­tion of the in­ter­na­tional art world ev­ery five years for this “mu­seum of 100 days.” The dis­course and the dy­nam­ics of the dis­cus­sion sur­round­ing each documenta re­flects and chal­lenges the ex­pec­ta­tions of so­ci­ety about art. documenta und Mu­seum Frid­eri­cianum ggmbh is a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion sup­ported and funded by the City of Kassel and the State of Hesse, as well as by the Ger­man Fed­eral Cul­tural Foun­da­tion. www.blogs.dig­i­­
