dOCUMENTA(13): In Conclusion

dOCUMENTA(13) is almost over. In several visits Niche Berlin managed to discover quite a lot – albeit not everything. Yes, it’s been impressive. But we’re far from being at one with each other about whether we found it brilliant or a bit too zeitgeisty (animism, urban gardening, Afghanistan). Either way, we’ve seen many, many good art works. And each trip was definitely more than worth it. For those who still haven’t paid their visit yet – here’s our final shortlist of contributions not to be missed.

dOCUMENTA(13): World Views

One of our highlights at this year‘s dOCUMENTA(13) main venues certainly was Neue Galerie. We got absorbed by contributions, which not only engaged with the medial conditionality of our “reality”, but did so by means of an unconventional take on their respective artistic medium, such as seen with Wael Shawky, Roman Ondak or Geoffrey Farmer.

dOCUMENTA(13): On seriality – or pausing with painting

Since we addressed the topic of resting already: The documenta-Halle is the perfect spot for a pause. It’s entirely dedicated to »artworks thinking through what painting is today«. Albeit their political, socio-critical contexts the exhibition is intensive and yet quite a lull in the documenta-overload, because the different artistic positions share the leitmotif of repetition and layering. The resulting contrast of serious issues and calming form is super interesting.
