To mixed reviews, dOCUMENTA (13) opened in Kassel, Germany on June 9. Curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev’s massive undertaking incorporates two hundred artists from fifty nations and a satellite gallery in Kabul. The exhibition dwells on the postwar, reflected in both its locations. The show’s range of artistic forms and subjects is impressive, perhaps even overwhelming. With works as apparently disconnected as ancient Afghani figurines, 20th century anti-fascist weavings and a compost heap garden, it leaves viewers the task of relating disparate reference points. The show runs until September 16.
