Artistic director Adam Szymczyk proposes that visitors follow a parcour of the venues of documenta14 in Kassel. It begins at the former underground train station (KulturBahnhof) and extends through the Nordstadt district across Friedrichsplatz in a southerly direction to the Torwache, the unfinished city gate.
Book Donations for The Parthenon of Books
The Parthenon of Books is an artwork in progress based on public participation. Thousands of books have already been donated for the installation currently being constructed on Kassel’s Friedrichsplatz, which is modelled after the eponymous temple on the Acropolis of Athens. During the exhibition, books can also be donated on the spot, to shape the Parthenon with formerly or currently forbidden books from around the world.
documenta14 Kassel cordially invite you to bring a book with you to the exhibition and thus become a part of the work.
While documenta 14 opens in Kassel today, the exhibition has been on open in Athens since April 8. In Athens, documenta 14 has already reached a total of 244,000 visits to the various exhibition locations, works in public space, and numerous events and performances taking place across the city. The number of visits is counted at the entrance to each documenta 14 venue, work in public space, and event.
The exhibition locations are open daily from 10 am–8 pm. Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased in the documenta webshop as well as in the on-site shop at Friedrichplatz, the documenta Halle, the Neue Galerie, and the Neue Neue Galerie (Neue Hauptpost).
