Rooms
room 15

The exhibition situation during the first documenta was characterised by a setting rich in contrasts: in the whitewashed room 15, darker sculptures by Hans Mettel, Marino Marini and Alexander Calder contrasted the luminous room situation optically. At the same time, the opening provided a glimpse into room 14, where Arnold Bode and his team worked with the contrasting colors. Here the sculpture "Konstruktion" (1937) by Bauhaus student Max Bill can be seen in front of a dark wall.
