RADICAL CAMOUFLAGE
At Documenta 13

Documenta, held every five years in the central German city of Kassel, 
is the art world’s equivalent of the Olympics. While its scale may be 
rivalled by Venice, its quinquennial timetable and large budget allow 
curators time to develop an elaborate vision, and it has often been used 
to test the temperature of contemporary art production. Some previous 
editions have been influential in changing the direction of the art 
world—for instance, Catherine David’s documenta 10 and Okwui Enwezor’s 
documenta 11 (to use the official typography) did much to push it 
towards documentary and a greater engagement with politics.
