dOCUMENTA is a very large and important, if not the most important exhibition of contemporary art.
(Not to be confused with an art fair) It takes place in Kassel, Germany, and this is number 13! (lucky number) It only happens every 5 years and it lasts for 100 days. (June 6- Sept 16 , 2012)
Well let me tell you I really didn't know what it was going to be like. It was more than amazing, I can't seem to wrap my head around the many things I saw this past couple of days. It felt as if there wasn't enough time to experience everything... The exhibition happens in many places across the city, the Fridericianum museum (one of the oldest museums in the world) is the "starting" point, and then the many venues everywhere including the wonderful pavilions in the Karlsaue park. There is something for everybody. There are things that provoke you and others that make you happy, some that question you and many that inspire you. I haven't quite "digested" everything I saw and felt but I'm so incredibly grateful to have been there. As the many art installations are more than a visual experience, I wish there was a way of showing you with sound, scent and overall feeling how it really was!
May your weekend be filled with art!
