frieze

frieze

“Somewhere at the heart of every bi-, tri-, quad- quintennial (and my, doesn’t it seem like every other town has one these days?) there survives a dearly held but fuzzy belief in a plain old-fashioned internationalism”

“Language remains an awkwardly unresolved issue, for the discourse surrounding Documenta 11 unwittingly revealed that there is still no satisfactory or widely agreed vocabulary for dealing with ‘difference’ in contemporary culture.”

“Talking the talk the way the curators of Documenta 11 did at the opening press conference – about disregarding or deliberately overleaping traditional boundaries … – raised the issue of also walking the walk.”

Dan Fox, Kobena Mercer and Thomas McEvilley ponder the vast Documenta experience in the September issue of frieze. Plus Joerg Heiser on Francis Alys, Adam McEwen on Tom Friedman, Jan Verwoert on Manfred Pernice and Lars Bang Larsen on Pia Ronicke.
