Aftermath of documenta 14 in Athens

Public Workshop on May 31, 2018, at Freie Universität

№ 114/2018 from May 24, 2018

A year after the opening of the documenta 14 in Athens, a workshop is being held to examine its aftermath on the Greek and international art scene. Artists, curators, and scholars will analyze the various implications. Entitled “Documenta 14: Aftermath in Athens,” the public workshop is being organized by the Center for Modern Greek Studies (CeMoG), Freie Universität Berlin, and the Institute of Art History and Historical Urban Studies, Technische Universität Berlin. Admission is free, and registration is not required.

An exception was made for the first time in 2017 for the 14th documenta, which normally always takes place in Kassel, Germany, to be held in Athens, Greece. How the capital of Greece developed one year after the opening of documenta 14 will therefore also be considered as part of the workshop. The participants will discuss economic and urban policy challenges and shed light on issues of power asymmetry and sustainability from local and global perspectives.
