Before visiting documenta 15, I simply expected a good exhibition, a good concept, good artworks and good space design. I was completely overwhelmed by how warm documenta 15 made me feel, both in terms of my original concept of the exhibition and the artwork.
First of all, „collective“ is a warm word that reminds us to be inclusive of all groups of people in the face of the terrible state of the world. Secondly, the poster design and promotional visuals can make people feel power and enthusiasm, I was totally infected with the desire to find out what is going on. documenta 15 not only combines social issues and makes people reflect on the current situation of society, but also in turn embraces and heals every viewer without those clichés, it is very natural, it makes me believe that great art and great exhibitions have the power to change the current situation of society, despite some unpleasant changes, but I believe most people will still benefit from it.
Not only that, but documenta 15 showed me how diverse the exhibition approach can be, and how comfortable everything is! I think documenta 15 can serve as a model to inspire my curatorial philosophy. The only annoying thing is that I can’t see it in person, I guess. I hope I will have the chance to go to Kassel in the future.
