Culture charts – we look back at 2022. Of course, rankings in art and culture are not statements on artistic value, they reflect visitor interest, sales figures or demand on the internet.

Measured in terms of visitor numbers, worldwide interest and public debate, by far the biggest – and most controversial – cultural event of the year was documenta 15 (https://www.deutschland.de/en/topic/culture/documenta-2022-radically-new) in Kassel. The exhibition of contemporary art was visited by 728,000 people.
