Daniel Buren Quote

More and more, the subject of an exhibition tends not be the display of artworks, but the exhibition of the exhibition as a work of art. Here, the Documenta team, headed by Harald Szeemann, exhibits (artworks) and exposes itself (to critiques).


Daniel Buren (1972), cited in: Marina Abramović, Jens Hoffmann (2004). The next Documenta should be curated by an artist.
