“Art makes experiences of a special kind possible. One may talk about these experiences. But one can also demonstrate them visually – in other words, show them. Here the medium of the exhibition can become the basis of a new way of showing, a new way of seeing. This documenta 12 edition is an extract from the sum total of photographs shot by various artists. It is not about something unfinished, not about a "making of", but about perspectives of an oeuvre called documenta.” Roger M. Buergel
