Surprise! At the press conference on 28.3. it became official:

In the summer of 2022, the Kunsthaus Göttingen will present an exciting exhibition concept entitled “printing futures” which will be shown as a partner project parallel to the documenta from June 18 to September 25.

The Kunsthaus Göttingen invites artists who examinate paper as an artistic medium in their work. The link for the partnership on documenta fifteen’s side is lumbung Press – a collective project of lumbung members and artists for flexible and process-oriented production of their print products on site in Kassel. Within the framework of printing futures and lumbung Press, documenta fifteen and Kunsthaus Göttingen realize joint events, publications and residencies.

As a cooperation partner and direct neighbor in the Kunstquartier (Art Quarter), the Literaturhaus Göttingen will be involved in the exhibition.
