Out and About with Rise Art

documenta 14 Athens

Our brand manager Katie Tsouros visited the documenta 14 exhibition at the EMST National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens. The first ‘documenta’ exhibition took place in 1955, when painter and professor Arnold Bode founded The Society of Western Art of the 20th Century with the intention of presenting art that had been declared unsavoury by the Nazis. ‘documenta’ takes place every 4 years and showcases current trends and new, innovative modes of expression.
