posted in: Europe, Germany | 1

Third and last installment of my trip to Kassel, Germany, for the famous annual dOCUMENTA(13) art exhibit. I visited the State Theater, Orangerie, Ottoneum and Documenta-Halle. Art included cinemagraphs, aboriginal art and many other contemporary pieces. Somewhat depressing, but worth the trip to see what the current art world is up to.
