The Education section invites an understanding of documenta as a catalyst. Artistic works and curatorial strategies from the history of documenta provide the starting point for processes of reflection on and communication about art, exhibitions, and the world. Here we provide information about workshops and events. In cooperation with Gila Kolb and Konstanze Schütze (agency art education), Ayşe Güleç, and Dating the Chorus.

“learning unlearning” is a series of events dedicated to the history and present of art education in exhibitions. It reflects and discusses theories, strategies, and practices of “Kunstvermittlung.” The series suggests that documenta can be seen as a trigger and impetus that can set in motion forms of assembly, negotiation, and debate about art, about the world, and about exhibitions. The public series of events is a collaboration between the documenta professor at the Kunsthochschule Kassel and Gila Kolb (agency art education).
