The dOCUMENTA (13) was the thirteenth edition of the quinquennial contemporary art exhibition documenta. It took place between 9 June until 16 September 2012 in Kassel. The exhibition is held under the theme Collapse and Recovery. Exhibits can be seen in several venues in the city, among others in the Fridericianum museum,[1] in the Orangerie (Kassel) and in the Karlsaue, a large urban park.[2]


Its artistic director is the curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev[3] who was chief curator of the Castello di Rivoli - Museo d'Arte Contemporanea in Turin and, in 2008, also head of the Biennale of Sydney.
