Documenta is one of the most important art exhibitions in the world. It takes place only once every five years, usually in Kassel. But in 2017, it will also be held in the Greek capital of Athens.
Documenta, Germany's prestigious contemporary art event, wraps up 100 days in Athens, while continuing in Kassel. Here's how it impacted a city in which art isn't its biggest concern.
The international art show opens in Kassel, a month after its first part set in Athens debuted. Political works reflecting the world's current tensions grab the attention. Here's a tour of the highlights.
The quinquennial art exhibition Documenta provides creative impetus and surprising encounters in Athens. Greeks and international guests have discovered a new side of the city.
The second half of Documenta 14 opens to the public in Kassel. Yet the global art show does not live up to its possibilities as it attempts to be modern and outspokenly political, says DW's Stefan Dege.
