dOCUMENTA (13) is almost upon us! This gigantic, prestigious art event happens only once every five years, for a nice even 100 days. Get ready to dive in: In June 2012, over 160 artists and other participants from around the world present their works all over the city of Kassel, including sculpture, performance, installation, research and archiving, painting, photography, film, curatorial, text-based and audio works as well as other experiments in the fields of aesthetics, art, politics, literature, science, and ecology.

One work we're especially excited about is A Guide to Campo del Cielo, which presents the reunification of "El Taco," the Argentinean meteorite that was cut in half 45 years ago for scientific purposes.

Since its establishment in 1955, documenta has been regarded as the most important international exhibition of contemporary art, and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors. More than 170 artists and participants showcasing new artworks in multiple venues across the entire city of Kassel.
