Fridericianum is a central hub of contemporary art. Significant positions and artistic currents as well as socially relevant issues are identified, presented and debated here. Experimental and well-researched group and solo exhibitions, screenings and performances as well as conferences highlight the spectrum of contemporary art and discourse.

Fridericianum is the world’s very first building specifically designed as a public museum. It was built in the spirit of the Enlightenment by namesake Landgrave Frederick II. who opened its doors in 1779. From then on the history of the building has been marked by disruption. Since the first documenta took place in the ruins of the city and those of Fridericianum in 1955, the building has been the heart of every documenta.
