Documenta kassel


An exhibition of modern and contemporary art held every five years for 100 days in Kassel, Germany, it was founded by artist and teacher Arnold Bode in 1955. Originally it was part of Kassel's hosting of the Federal Horticultural Show. The first "documenta" featured artists highly influential on modern art such as Picasso and Kandinsky, but recently most of the entries are site specific. June 2012 is the beginning date of the next "documenta", an invented word intended to mean a documentation of modern art. Source: Wikipedia;
