Social events

The social events of TIME 2015 are planned to cover two of Kassels most popular "sights", the "Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe", which was recently anounced to be a UNESCO world heritage site, and the DOCUMENTA. This is one of the world's major exhibitions of mordern and contemporary art, which takes place every five years in Kassel. The next (documenta 14) will be in 2017, but there are some older exhibits which can be visited.

Welcome Reception (Wednesday, September 23nd)

The Welcome Reception will take place on a former cruise ship on river Fulda. To get there, we will pass several pieces of art, which remained from previous DOCUMENTA exhibitions.

Conference dinner (Thursday, September 24nd)

The conference dinner will take place at Kaskadenwirtschaft, situated in the heart of Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe. This offers a good opportunity to take a short walk through the impressively designed park.
