“The dance was very frenetic, 
lively, rattling, clanging,
 rolling, contorted,
 and lasted for a long time”

September 16, 2012 marked the final day of the dOCUMENTA (13) exhibition.
 
After 100 days open to the public the total number of visitors in Kassel was 905,000, amounting to 110,000 additional visitors or a 14% increase from the previous edition of documenta in 2007.
 
An additional 27,000 people visited the dOCUMENTA(13) exhibition held in Kabul from June 20 to July 19, 2012, bringing the total number of visitors to 887,000.
 
An exhibition is an unfolding organism, like a vegetable bud. It comes from intuitions, then it forms an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge; like a plant—which contains in itself many other living entities—it has roots, buds and where to get viagra cheap fruit. 
After four years of preliminary encounters, seminars and where can i buy real viagra preparations, after a 100-day exhibition and cialis online order other activities in Kassel, a series of seminars and a 30-day exhibition in Kabul, an 8-day seminar in Alexandria, and a 14-day retreat in Banff, dOCUMENTA (13) closed in Kassel on Sunday, September 16, 2012, at 8 pm. On June 9, 2012, when the exhibition opened in Kassel, we said that dOCUMENTA (13) was dedicated to artistic research and viagra side effects forms of imagination that explore commitment, matter, things, embodiment, and active living in connection with, yet not subordinated to, theory. We said these were terrains where politics are inseparable from a sensual, energetic, and worldly alliance between current research in various scientific and where to get viagra artistic fields and buy cialis low price other knowledges, both ancient and cialis dosage contemporary, and that dOCUMENTA (13) was driven by a holistic and cialis price in canada non-logocentric vision that is skeptical of the persisting belief in economic growth, a vision that is shared with, and recognizes, the shapes and online generic cialis 50 mg practices of knowing of all the animate and what is cialis professional inanimate makers of the world, including people. 
And now we add that an exhibition could be thought of as a pre-reflexive consciousness, a qualitative duration of consciousness without itself. A bliss able to go beyond the aporias of the subject and buying viagra in canada the object—an experience of life no longer dependent on the first, nor submitted to the latter. Art is ceaselessly posed in life. And this indefinite life posed in art allows us to grasp the lived and buy propecia no prescription living, to understand life as carried by the events, and by the singularities actualized in subject/objects. Art does not just come after life, but rather it offers the immensity of a temporality constituting spaces where one sees the event yet to come in the absolute of an immediate consciousness.


documenta 14 will open to the public on Saturday, June 10, 2017.
