documenta 12 / Kassel / part 1

Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany, is one of the word’s most important exhibitions of contemporary art. Documenta Kassel takes place every five years. Documenta was founded by artist and teacher Arnold Bode in 1955. The artistic director of documenta 12 is the exhibition organizer and curator Roger M. Buergel (born in Berlin in 1962). “Together with the art historian, Ruth Noack, as curator, he will, in line with documenta’s claims, show art from the most various regions of the world and in all conceivable media.” (PR documenta12). The first video in our documenta 12 coverage includes scenes from the opening of documenta12 and impressions from the documenta Halle. Kassel, June 15 and 16, 2007.
