Documenta, Director Genera
Born in 1962 in the German town of Bad Homburg v. d. Höhe, Sabine Schormann assumed the position of General Director of documenta und Museum Fridericianum gGmbH on November 1, 2018. She can look back on 18 years of experience in her dual function as Director of the foundations Niedersächsische Sparkassenstiftung and VGH-Stiftung in Hanover. During her tenure, she developed and shaped both foundations helping them to achieve their present significance. With an annual grant of approximately five million euros, the two foundations support the cultural offerings of the State of Lower Saxony, particularly in the fields of fine arts, museums, music, literature, preservation of historical monuments and historical sciences.
Previously, Sabine Schormann established Germany’s nationwide European Heritage Day for the Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz (German Foundation for Monument Conservation) in 1991, which is still regarded as a successful model today.
From 1996 to 2000 Sabine Schormann was Exhibition Director for “Planet of Visions” and “The 21st Century” in the theme park of the World Exposition EXPO 2000 in Hanover.
