Sigmar Polke was part of documenta in three consecutive years: At documenta 5, at documenta 6 in 1977 and again at documenta 7 in 1982. At Polke’s first documenta attendance, the prestigious exhibition experienced its first structural turmoil with a clear programmatic direction by curator Harald Szeemann. In 1972, Sigmar Polke was represented in the Individual Mythologies section of the exhibition. While his artistic accompaniments Gerhard Richter and Georg Baselitz unhang their works the day before the actual exhibition opened, Polke participated at documenta 6, which saw an expansion of the artistic field and a focus on media-critical art of the 70s. At documenta 7 curated by Rudi Fuchs, Sigmar Polke exhibited in Kassel for the third time. The seventh documenta-edition focused on paintings and sculptures. Rudi Fuchs rather wanted to organize a documenta that did "justice to the dignity of art."

Sigmar Polke's extensive oeuvre includes painting, works on paper, photography, film, objects and graphic art. His unconventional and experimental use of different media and materials, as well as his rich visual worlds, made him one of the most influential post-war German artists and celebrated as the German answer to Pop Art and its representatives Rauschenberg, Lichtenstein, and Warhol.
