Travel with Professors Micol Hebron and Michael Dopp this summer to learn the history of the Biennale di Venezia Art exhibition and of the 14th iteration of the quinquennial exhibition, Documenta. Throughout your trip you will visit museums, hear from professional artists, work on a group curatorial exhibition project among many other cultural immersive activities. This is a rare occurrence given that both Documenta and Biennale only overlap once every 10 years.



Although participants will visit Kassel, Germany primarily for Documenta, you will also get the chance to visit other contemporary art museums, as well as the Brother’s Grimm Museum. In Venice, Italy, students will visit museums, art fairs, and galleries exploring the cultural and historical richness of the city. These venues will provide opportunities for students to study and compare cutting edge contemporary art while surrounded by hundreds of years of European culture.


This Travel Course will count for Chapman’s Artistic Inquiry as well as Global Study Requirement.
