Art that aims at the present inevitably has to do with the sometimes rather poisoned relations of art, politics, and society. Against this background, the talks explore the early entanglements of documenta, but they also pose the question of how contemporary art positions itself in today's world of global conflict. What can and should art do in the face of pandemic and war?
