Claudia Roth criticizes Documenta curators - culture


Jörg Haentzschel

The controversy over anti-Semitic artworks on the Documenta gets violent again shortly before the end of the show on September 25th. Managing Director Alexander Farenholtz defended the position of the Ruangrupa curator collective in the 3sat program "Kulturzeit" on Tuesday evening. Its members were once again criticized because they had brusquely rejected a report and recommendations by an expert commission on anti-Semitismn. Unlike a museum, Farenholtz argues, the documenta is not committed to the idea of ​​neutrality and balance: "Partisanship is important and the documenta as an institution has to endure the resulting debates."
