Documenta 6, Kassel

Curated by Manfred Schneckenburger, documenta 6 is the largest German art exhibition ever held. It pursues the “idea of the media-critical 1970s”: a critically minded attitude that focuses on the increasing power exerted by the media and its reality-distorting factors. Video art is one of the focal points, and works are featured by Ulrike Rosenbach, Vito Acconci, and Joan Jonas. As part of the documenta 6 program, video tapes are broadcast on television on nine evenings.
