From 10 June to 17 September 2017, the documenta is taking place in Kassel for the 14th time. Globally it is considered the most important exhibition of contemporary art and attracts about one million visitors every five years. Of course, this creates a correspondingly great interest from the media. Therefore, traditionally the documenta is opened with an international press conference for which over 3,000 journalists registered for 7 June – a new attendance record which involved a number of logistic and organisational challenges. With a large contingent of personnel and technology, the team at the Kongress Palais ensured the success of the mega press conference.
