Description

Both documenta14 publications available online at an exclusive combo rate.

d14 Daybook 

The documenta 14 Daybook emphasizes the 163 calendar days of the exhibition in Athens and Kassel in 2017—a first-time extension of the usual 100-day documenta project—and the personal and subjective nature of the spectator’s relationship to them. Each documenta 14 artist is granted a day in the Daybook, which includes a newly commissioned text as well as images selected by the artist specifically for the publication.

The texts are authored by a wide variety of writers—critics, curators, poets, novelists, and historians—and are close readings of the artists’ practices in an array of literary forms: criticism, letters, poems, and parables. The Daybook is accompanied by two map booklets, for Athens and Kassel respectively, that are available in the exhibition and can be inserted into the Daybook’sdust jacket, thereby completing the book.

With contributions by Alexander Alberro, Athena Athanasiou, Negar Azimi, Jean-François Chevrier, Moyra Davey, Marta Dziewańska, Anselm Franke,
 Natasha Ginwala, Paz Guevara, Rachel Haidu, Virginija Januškevičiūtė, R. Siva Kumar, Yvette Mutumba, Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Nana Oforiatta Ayim, Panos Panopoulos, Yehuda Safran, Kaelen Wilson-Goldie, Zhang Yaxuan, and many others


d14 Reader 

The main book of documenta 14 takes the form of a reader, evoking the various meanings associated with the term. The documenta 14 Reader explores—in essay, allegory, poem, historical legal document, and hybrid literary other—the discursive and practical concerns of the project, such as debt and gift, the coloniality of power, economies of the exhibition, and languages (and other currencies) without remainder. A critical anthology that reflects on history in order to better envision the present and reconceptualize the future, the Reader features both newly commissioned and foundational texts as well as image portfolios that illustrate the expansive scope—at once temporal and geographic—of historical artists and actors included in the documenta 14 project.

With contributions by Tony Bennett, Ross Birrell, Maria Boletsi, Jacques Derrida, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, W. E. B. Du Bois, Silvia Federici, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Yannis Hamilakis, Candice Hopkins, Quinn Latimer, Isabell Lorey, Sylvère Lotringer, Antonio Negri, Pauline Oliveros, Hiva Panahi, Paul B. Preciado, Adam Szymczyk, and others
