From September 10 to September 17, 2017, everybody is welcome to pick up a book at the redistribution counter next to The Parthenon of Books, which will be opened during the regular opening hours of the exhibition.

How do I obtain a book?
We will be happy to redistribute books from the Parthenon to you. (Please have your documenta 14 admission ticket ready to present.) Books will be redistributed on a random basis, which means that you will not be able to choose specific titles. In the interest of the environment, we would ask that you dispose of the plastic packaging in the proper manner.

Only as long as supplies last. Claims to legal entitlement will not be recognized.

In case of bad weather the redistribution does not take place.
