The Logbook: Documenta 13: 2/3

Author(s): Documenta


The Documenta "Logbook" volume reveals Artistic Director Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev's working methods for the 2012 Documenta, from the earliest planning stages in 2010 right up to the opening of Documenta in 2012, in writings and photographs. A second section of photographs documents the installation of artist's works in Kassel, plus a schedule of the various public events, from concerts to performances. With its emphasis on the provisional and the processual and the provisional, the Logbook expresses Christov-Bakargiev's guiding strategy and philosophy for Documenta 13: "to exercise imagination as a space of accuracy in which to practice and challenge our definition of the political." Christov-Bakargiev is a curator and writer based in Rome, Kassel and New York. After organizing exhibitions as an independent curator in different countries, from 1999 to 2001 she was senior curator of exhibitions at MoMA P.S.1. She was the chief curator at the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art in Turin from 2002 to 2008 (and interim director of the museum in 2009). She was the co-curator of the first Turin Triennial in 2005 and artistic director for the 16th Biennale of Sydney in 2008.
