documenta Lounge offer

The first documenta was organized in Kassel in 1955. In the course of its thirteen editions, the exhibition has continued to develop, becoming a place of great debates on contemporary culture and its current sociopolitical contexts. In 2017, Athens and Kassel will host the exhibition as equal partners for the first time. In both cities and beyond, documenta 14 seeks to sound a variety of voices, rewriting the understanding of what such an exhibition could be.

The art mediation program “aneducation” offers walks to visitors, accompanied by specially trained members of the Chorus. The exhibition is discovered and unraveled together. Participants in the Walks will be invited to contribute their own perspectives, question what they see, and get to know each other on the paths between selected documenta 14 venues.

For an exceptional visit, this year we've created the documenta Lounge: in addition to a walk with a selected member of the Chorus, the visitors will have access to the documenta Lounge in combination with a special culinary reception.


documenta Lounge offer
You will be greeted with a welcome drink and snacks in the official documenta Lounge, directly on Friedrichsplatz. The Lounge is located in one of Kassel’s most beautiful buildings, constructed in a 1950s style with breathtaking views of the Karlsaue Park.

A member of the Chorus will accompany you for a two-hour walk to various exhibition venues and introduce you to the history and curatorial concept of documenta 14.

The documenta Lounge has been completely redesigned for the duration of the 100-day exhibition in Kassel. It is the official venue for special receptions and events. Access is reserved for press representatives, artists, staff members, and guests of the documenta Lounge.
