The existence of Document(A) was an attempt to bring Germany up to speed with modern art, both banishing and repressing the cultural darkness of Nazism. This first Document(A) featured artists who are generally considered to have had a significant influence on modern art (such as Picasso and Kandinsky). The exhibition takes place in every five years and is limited to 100 days of exhibition. It often coincides with two other major art world events: The Bienal Internacional de Sao Paulo & La Biennale di Venezia.
 
Kassel is such a small city with nothing but interestingly it carrys different million voices in such harmony. You will see artists from different corners of the world, trying their very best to present their anxiety, confusion, dissatisfaction, desire, confession towards the world through all those powerful and inspiring artworks. Not everyone has the same standpoint, yet both hoping the world become a better place.

The works of Indian artist Nalini Malani "Search of Vanish Blood" is one of the most impressive. The artist introduced her work as image/shaow play which was inspired from the Eastern German writer Christa Wolf's literature <Cassandra> as a metaphor discussing the low social status of Indian Woman in recent world, and try to restore women's right thru ancient Indian Myth.

The more recent Document(A) has already become a platform for exploring the social and political conflicts as well as providing an excellent civil education lesson. And this spriit will keep pass on and on!

We have to voice out while we can still breathe. 
We have to cherish while we can still speak.
