Opened in late 2019, ‘about: documenta’ is exactly what you hope it is going to be, namely a marvellously intricate and detailed love letter to one of the world’s great artistic celebrations. Different rooms shine lights on the history of the festival, with a special ‘Gallery of Memory’ delighting with media collages and more. Being documenta-related, visitors to the exhibition are not mere bystanders, instead active participants in the magic of expression. The exhibition is a spectacular tribute to a spectacular festival, documenting its evolution from Arnold Bode’s brainchild into an event of serious international importance. documenta has changed its form over the years and will continue to do so as art hurtles through the 21st century, and we can’t wait to see what comes next.
