Documenta 13

by Emily Nathan

Visitors to the German town of Kassel for Documenta 13, June 9-Sept. 12, 2012, are advised to rent a bike. Curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev’s 13th edition of the 150-day-long global art quinquennial is bigger than ever, occupying the idyllic acreage of Karlsaue Park, a handful of enormous exhibition hubs including the Natural History Museum, the main train station and the Fridericianum, and a smattering of quirky “off-site” venues, from a brick bomb shelter built into the side of a highway to a downtown department store. Getting lost is part of the game -- so why not do it with the wind at your back?
