documenta 14 // Photos from the Opening in Kassel

Photos by Ruppert Bohle in Kassel // Saturday, Jun. 10, 2017

The latest edition of the lauded international, quinquennial art exhibition documenta will open its doors for the second time this year, this time in its customary home in Kassel, Germany. In April, the exhibition started in Athens, where the curatorial team had been living and preparing the event for the last two years. With a new two-city format and a pedagogical framework stemming from the exhibition’s title, ‘Learning from Athens’, documenta 14 has produced a generous amount of new works dealing with urgent political questions. Berlin Art Link visited the preview in Kassel this week and took some photos from the exhibition, which will open to the public on June 10th.
