At the end of Documenta 15 in Kassel - culture


Of

Peter Richter

After this weekend is the Documenta Number 15 over. There are likely to be quite a few who think along with the word "finally" when making this statement. It's probably the only thing that critics and creators of this edition could still agree on. But that is by no means the end of the matter. Now balance must be drawn and for the future perhaps also a few conclusions, if this series of exhibitions is to have a future at all. The number of visitors, it was said recently, could despite Corona and despite all the scandals only 15 to 20 percent below those of the last Documenta, which, despite its record result, also posted a record deficit of 7.6 million euros.
