Documenta: the Art Olympics

documenta 13 - MeineKnipserei.jpg

Produced with Emma Ruddock

It’s a massive exhibit that takes every place every five years across multiple indoor and outdoor venues in Kassel Germany. We wanted to know more about the event, and what makes it the pinnacle of fine art exhibitions, so we got in touch with Blake Gopnik, arts and design critic for the Daily Beast. He visited Kassel earlier this month and joins us now to explain what he saw, and why people are paying attention.
