Cultural event of world standing since it establishment in 1955. It is dedicated to artistic research and forms of imagination that explore commitment, matter, things, embodiment, and active living in connection with.
dOCUMENTA is driven by a holistic and non-logocentric vision that is skeptical of the presisting belief in economic growth. There are four conditions that put into play of dOCUMENTA:

  • On stage. I am playing a role, I am a subject in the act of by other re-performing.
  • Under seige. I am encircled by the other, besieged by others.
  • In a state of hope, or optimism. I dream, I am the dreaming subject of anticipation. 
  • On retreat. I am withdrawn, I choose to leave the others, I sleep. 
These 4 conditions take place in four locations which dOCUMENTA is physically and concepturally sited- Kassel, Kabul, Alexandria/Cairo and Banff. Thee places are phenomenal spatialities that embody the four conditions.
