Arts.21 visits the Documenta 14 exhibition. From the townships of South Africa to the world’s opera stages: Pretty Yende. Plus: Paul Auster’s new novel, and why millennials are so difficult to figure out.
The northern German city of Kassel will get its fill of visitors when it opens Documenta on June 10. The world's most prestigious contemporary art show will show works from over 160 artists.
The international art show opens in Kassel, a month after its first part set in Athens debuted. Political works reflecting the world's current tensions grab the attention. Here's a tour of the highlights.
The general population does not always feel engaged by Kassel's modern art show, but the Documenta 14 wants to change this. Even before its opening on June 10, several participatory projects are underway.
The second half of Documenta 14 opens to the public in Kassel. Yet the global art show does not live up to its possibilities as it attempts to be modern and outspokenly political, says DW's Stefan Dege.
