The documenta 14 guide will take the form of a daybook, emphasizing the 163 calendar days of the exhibitions in Athens and Kassel—a first-time extension of the usual 100-day project of past documenta—and the personal and subjective nature of the spectator’s relationship to them. Each documenta 14 artist will be granted a day in this daybook, which will be accompanied by a newly commissioned text on that artist’s practice, as well as an image of artwork commissioned by the artist specifically for the publication. The critical texts will be authored by a wide variety of practitioners—critics, curators, novelists, historians, and poets—and the images will be singular and created by the artists especially for the daybook itself.
Quinn Latimer is a poet, critic, and editor based in Basel and Athens. She is currently Editor-in-Chief of Publications for documenta 14.
