The second of three reviews of Documenta 11, published in Frieze, issue 69, September 2002, totalling 14 pages (pp. 80 - 93). The reviews, all liberally illustrated, were written by Thomas McEvilley, Kobena Mercer and Dan Fox.

Title: Documenta 11
Author: Kobena Mercer

A fairly comprehensive view of the main elements of Documenta 11, (on pages 86-89). From the article: “A week after Documenta 11 opened, Steve McQueen was honoured with an OBE. While his nomination has everything to do with the “politics of representation“ practised by New Labour, which, like other institutions, frequently parades a multicultural exhibitionism that strives to “show“ how inclusive and diverse it wants to be, the artist’s acceptance of the award is indicative of the new dilemmas that arise when inclusivity becomes the rule rather than the exception.”
