It features work from over 1,500 international artists

ANGELA DORN, SCIENCE AND ART MINISTER, STATE OF HESSE:

“Documenta has always been a portrayal of its time, a revolutionary art exhibition which questions the way we look at the world, which questions our concept of art today.”

This year’s pieces include a compostable toilet

which resembles an observation deck
