Are we looking at history?
Are we open to images and stories in art that are unfamiliar and foreign?
Can we learn from history that is outside of the Western art history narrative?

Adam Szymwzyk. If you are an art enthusiast, you are by now fully aware of
the Director’s double vision of extending this traditional German exhibition held in Kassel every five years since 1955, to include Athens, Greece. A first.
