Kunsthochschule Kassel

Idyllically sited in Kassel’s Auepark, the Kunsthochschule is housed inside a marvel of late modernist architecture designed by Paul Friedrich Posenenske in the 1960s. For some time, the art school has been affiliated with the University of Kassel, itself a relatively young institution (its roots in progressive educational policies of the 1960s and ’70s still occasionally appearing above ground, as it were). It is here that, in October 2014, the stated interest of documenta 14 in “Learning from Athens” was first publicly declared. For these reasons, the Kunsthochschule could be considered a logical ground zero for this edition of the quinquennial exhibition, so emphatically invested in questions of education and pedagogy, of “great learning” and equally profound unlearning.
