»How much Bauhaus is in documenta? Seeking traces«

The first Virtual Exhibition of the documenta archiv is online! It explores the question in which way Bauhaus concepts have inscribed themselves in the documenta idea.

The Virtual Exhibition follows indications as to the extent to which the first four documenta exhibitions referred to the Bauhaus or were influenced by it. The most important actors, the institutions involved, the exhibited works, the appreciation of art and the visual appearance of the documenta are examined. In addition to vivid illustrations, numerous impressive features, cross-references and background information enrich the narratives.
