STANDBY

THIS WEEK:

The eagerly anticipated Documenta11 exhibition finally gets underway, with the who's who of the international art world flocking to the small town of Kassel in Germany, along with a few hundred thousand cultural tourists. William Kentridge's latest multimedia production, The Confessions of Zeno, is one of the opening attractions, playing at the Staatstheater Kassel this weekend. Photographers Santu Mofokeng and David Goldblatt will be there (see International Listings), as will Kendell Geers - who's so hot in Europe right now he might just go up in flames. His most important solo exhibition thus far, at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, opened on June 1, and a prequel show can be seen at the Camouflage gallery in Brussels. According to Geers (subject of this month's Artbio), his work - a single unlit match titled The Terrorist's Apprentice - was destroyed by an unknown vandal at the Paris opening. A very strange irony, as the artist himself observes.

The next Artthrob update will be on June 17.
