Documenta 12, June 16-Sept. 23, 2007, is one of the strangest art exhibitions you’re likely to see. Containing over 150 artists, sprawling through five different buildings in Kassel, Germany, the show has nary a white cube in sight. One section is arranged in a labyrinthine, open-form layout in the new Aue-Pavilion, a custom-made 10,000-square-meter shed with clear corrugated plastic walls hung with silvery polyester curtains and a hard asphalt floor (painted dark red and resembling cork).
