At the center of the public exhibition in Kassel is the press and information center, located on the ground and first floor of the former leather store Leder Meid. The wallpaper works by Beatriz González and Dmitri Prigov connect these two floors of the venue to some of the central concerns and modes of address within the exhibition at large. The venue also presents the documenta 14 radio program Every Time A Ear di Soun, as well as TV documentaries on the documenta 14 exhibition in Athens and Kassel. Accessed from a different entrance, the third floor of Leder Meid, in the former apartment of the factory owners, offers a number of paintings by Apostolos Georgiou that address private rituals of domesticity and middle class defeat. These manifold forms of sound, image, and archive converge in this multistoried venue, expanding the question of how documenta 14—as a public art institution—actually becomes public.
