Jef Cornelis - Documenta 4 DVD 23695
"Documenta 4" by Belgian film-maker Jef Cornelis (b.1941) is the first title of the new "Archives" collection, which is dedicated to landmark exhibitions and curatorial practices, and which provides reference material and moving images to a growing field of research, that of curatorial studies and exhibition history. Held in Kassel between June and October 1968, "Documenta 4" - the last to be directed by Documenta founder Arnold Bode - was plagued by controversy and debate: artistic and political and generational and aesthetic conflicts, as well as tensions between European and American art were some of the issues that affected this edition.
