PLATFORM MUSE: Documenta11

Every five years the contemporary-art community descends on the small Hessian city of Kassel to experience Documenta, the exhibition whose art-world weight is often matched by its propensity for the big statement.

Artforum asked four contributors where Documenta11 succeeds and where it comes up short.
