The movement focused on the spatial qualities of sculpture and paintings with the goal of breaking through the two-dimensionality of the traditional picture plane.

One wavelength will stimulate our perception of red, another orange, another yellow and so on through all the colors of the spectrum. Giacomo Balla’s beautiful painting of a street lamp is a poetic impression that represents the physical properties of light. At its center, the bulb burns with a white heat in the darkness of the night. Its radiant glow dissolves in concentric waves, each of which diminish in intensity and change color…

At a jam-packed press conference for the most highly anticipated event in art this year, documenta 14—which opens for professional previews today in Athens—artistic director Adam Szymczyk and his team maintained their approach: keeping statements broad and elusive until the very last minute. As more information about the program was being released in trickles since the beginning of April—in a succession of long announcements in Greek, German, and English—it became clear that, at least the Athens leg of the quinquennial will be dominated by performances, actions, sound art, and texts, rather than visual offerings. The press conference opened with a…
