For the second time, documenta fifteen is collaborating with the 38. Kasseler Dokfest, which will take place on-site from November 16­–21, 2021, and online until November 26. Together with the Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival, documenta fifteen hosts a selection of projects.

Special Exhibition Débordements / Überläufe

A collaborative project created by students of École Supérieure d’Art Pays Basque (Bayonne-Biarritz, France) and the class of Film and Moving Image of Kunsthochschule Kassel. Their goal was to reflect on the concept of borders. A point of departure for their thinking was the ever present friction in the history of territories and topographies, in historical and contemporary narratives of Europe, between atlases and landscapes, centers and peripheries, across borders and their transgression, as well as in translations between different languages. They explored political, geographical and linguistic borders, but also our experience of borders as sensory, psychological, ontological and – above all – malleable. The collaborators took into consideration how borders define and at the same time separate us, but also investigated spaces of disconnection, zones of contact, frontlines and places of passage.
