Described in NYTimes as an ‘unruly organism of a show’, Documenta 13 is a sprawling exhibition of art going on in Kassel Germany. I’ve not seen it, I spent the last few days in Tennesee not Germany, but I felt struck by a battery of emotions about the exhibit (and art itself) after reading Jerry Saltz’s article on NYMAG about ‘Post Art’ and that the way we view art will continue to change. Which I agree is inevitable in an ever evolving field but I’m not sure I enjoy the glimpse of the future quite as much as he does. If these things are the shape (or lack there of) of art to come, I’m not sure I like it. But maybe I’m just being ‘roped off’, as he says. What do you all think?
