Stub?[edit]

I found this article and I must say I am quite disappointed by its lack of content... I don't know how to do this, but I'd classify it as a Stub.

At least there is some information as an introduction to this event. Don't you agree? --Auguste Bolte (talk) 20:11, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

Does the Documenta 10 article have sufficient secondary sourcing to give itself any notability not inherited from the main gig? I don't think so; all the sources appear to be WP:PRIMARY. I also note there are no other pages on individual years; suggestive of the fact that others have note a lack of sole notability before. Although that is just an OR opinion.

  • Just a note -- there are actually pages for each year. I am inclined to agree, however. All the individual articles consist of a brief intro and a list of names. Most are not sourced at all. Within the highly specialized world of contemporary art, I suppose an argument could be made for each edition's significance, but I believe that would involve some original research. documenta 11 has the best claim for significance as there has been a great deal written about it, but unless it's expanded and better sourced it too is just a stub and a list. I'm going with merge all the individual articles into the parent article. If someone wants to undertake the major task of writing new articles that demonstrate notability independent of the main article those articles can be recreated/unredirected. Until that time, I see no point of each year having an article. freshacconci talk to me 18:01, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

The documenta exhibitions are major modern art events. There are certainly many sources available, they are just not mentioned in the article. Just browing the web: [1], [2], [3]. These are just three, in English, without apending too much time looking for them. There is certainly a huge mass of sources also in German. --FocalPoint (talk) 16:52, 23 April 2017 (UTC)
