Next stop Documenta 14

My third Documenta visit. I was very excited about it but I have to say it was a disappointment. There was some good parts of course, but most of the time it felt like visiting a preparatory art school exhibition. Bad lightning and to little information didn't make it better. Add to that that Kassel might be the most grey and sad city in Europe. I think Documenta is a big event in Kassel so if it feels dead during I wonder how it is the rest of the time.... We left one day early. Here are some of the highlights though.

Starting with Agnes Denes, The living pyramid. Ibrahim Mahama. Parthenon of books, 100 000 banned books, Marta Minujin.
