Symposium: documenta. History / Art / Politics
The aesthetic-political history of the Federal Republic of Germany is reflected in a special way in the documenta: when it was founded in 1955, it was regarded as an artistic initiative to re-enter the world of modernism, as a 'new beginning' after a phase of extreme political-ideological instrumentalisation.Since then it has run like a red thread through the history of the Federal Republic of Germany and has repeatedly become a place where central aspects of German post-war history, the traces of National Socialism, the Cold War bloc formation and the self-image of German society were reflected.
