DIGITAL TOUR
The dMAPS application stands out at this year’s dOCUMENTA, curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev. Thanks to this application, which you can download onto your smart phone, you will be able to learn about the history of post-war reconstruction in Kassel wherever you happen to be in the city. During dOCUMENTA, dMAPS will also be compatible with some of the works in the exhibition. Going beyond the usual audio guide, dMAPS engages with the works, in a sense complementing them. Don’t miss dOCUMENTA(13), one of the world’s distinguished art events.

SOLE TURKISH ARTIST
Kutluğ Ataman, whose Sılsel project at the Galata Greek Primary School was part of this year’s 18th Istanbul Theater Festival, earned the distinction of being the only Turkish artist to participate in a dOCUMENTA exhibition when he took part in dOCUMENTA (11).
