The Jean Pigozzi African Art Collection
Documenta11, Kassel, Germany
from 08/06/2002 to 15/09/2002
Okwui Enwezor, a native of Nigeria, was the first non-European art director of documenta—and the first documenta of the new millennium was the first truly global, postcolonial documenta exhibition. “Documenta 11 rests on five platforms which aim to describe the present location of culture and its interfaces with other complex, global knowledge systems.” Thus the exhibition in Kassel was the fifth and last platform in the concept introduced by Okwui Enwezor and his curatorial team, composed of Carlos Basualdo, Ute Meta Bauer, Susanne Ghez, Sarat Maharaj, Mark Nash, and Octavio Zaya.
