Documenta 14: What can we still learn from art?


  • Bruna Fetter



Documenta 14. Contemporary art. Athens. Historical narratives. Political art.


Under praise and many controversies, documenta 14, with Polish Adam Szymczyk as its art director, was marked by a strong curatorial discourse. Divided between its usual location in the German city of Kassel and the capital of Greece, the great show used the motto “Learning from Athens” to present a political approach that debated complex discussions of contemporaneity while questioning historical narratives on art.
