Ticket sales for documenta fifteen begins today on the website and on the ticket hotline, as well as at all the well-known advance sales outlets in Germany. Starting now, visitors can purchase day tickets, 2-day tickets, school group tickets, family tickets, or season tickets. Day tickets, school group tickets, and family tickets are valid for any desired day in the period of the exhibition, from June 18 to September 25, 2022; 2-day tickets are valid for two consecutive days beginning whenever desired within the period of the exhibition.
For the first time, there is also the possibility to buy a “solidarity ticket” that can be retrieved by another person as a free ticket to visit documenta fifteen. Entrance is free for children up to the age of 12. Group visits can be booked individually via the ticket e-mail address of documenta fifteen. In Spring 2022, tickets will go on sale for guided tours and workshops.
With the exception of the season tickets, the tickets now offered are also valid on the day of the exhibition visit as a ticket for public transport in the KasselPlus tariff area. Holders of season tickets have the opportunity to purchase reduced-price NVV monthly passes during the exhibition period. Subscribers to NVV annual passes will receive discounts on guided tours, for example.
Beyond that, tickets to documenta fifteen have another special feature:
In accordance with the artistic concept, one euro of each ticket sold will go to long-term sustainability projects in Germany and Indonesia, for example to a reforestation measure in the Reinhardswald near Kassel or to a project for the ecological enrichment of oil palm and rubber plantations in the Jambi region on Sumatra. In the framework of these measures, the documenta fifteen works together with Göttingen University and HessenForst in Germany and with Jambi University and the artists collective Rumah Budaya Sikukeluang on Sumatra, Indonesia. The symposium urun rembuk – thinking and acting on sustainability from 10.30 am to 7 pm on November 5, 2021 at ruruHaus in Kassel offers additional glimpses of the sustainability projects supported by ticket sales to documenta fifteen.
Under the Artistic Direction of ruangrupa, documenta fifteen will be held from June 18 to September 25, 2022, daily from 10 am to 8 pm at various locations in Kassel. The artists collective from Jakarta has based documenta fifteen on the values and ideas of lumbung (an Indonesian term for a communally used rice barn). lumbung as an artistic and economic model is rooted in principles such as collectivity, communal resource sharing, and equal allocation, and is embodied in all parts of the collaboration and the exhibition. lumbung will be the joint practice of ruangrupa and the Artistic Team, the lumbung members and artists, and all participants in the preparation of documenta fifteen in 2022 and beyond.
