Title: The Show that maps out art’s future
Subtitle: At the four-yearly Documenta exhibition in in Germany, Richard Dorment finds artists turning their attention to the outside world
Author: Richard Dorment

Review contains 2 images with the following captions: Costume drama : “Yinka Shonibare’s installation suggests that the 18th-century Grand Tour was about sexual as well as cultural education; Touching: Ataman’s The Four Seasons of Veronica Read.… The images are of Gallantry and Criminal Conversation, 2002 - Yinka Shonibare and The Four Seasons of Veronica Read, 2002 - Kutlug Ataman. From the review: “There are no prizes at Documenta, but had there been, another Iranian film-maker, Shirin Neshat, would have been a contender for the highest award for her breathtaking and mysterious film dealing with gender, ritual and nature among societies where there is still a belief in the sacred.” Considering its scale and scope. Documenta 11 is remarkable, an exhibition that tells you a lot about what is happening in art right now, and does so in a constantly stimulating way.”
