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 fruit. After four years of preliminary encounters, seminars and preparations, after a 100-day exhibition and 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.


Oak Hill Studio Oak Hill Studio I have always been fascinated by Victorian dolls, the fanciful porcelain faces of the 19th Century always seemed to speak to me. I was inspired to begin creating my own versions of a Victorian doll, but I wanted to be sure that everything would be done entirely by hand without the use of molds. I really wanted to become engaged in the process, the work of creating a little form. I began experimenting, and with time began creating creatures that spoke to me.
