If the sound of the Art Cologne was the iphone ring tone, the sound of this documenta is "ooooh!" I mean the dreamy, snow-white "oooh!", the one that comes before "oooh how lovely, how beautiful, how nice..."I listened to myself go ooohh so many times I had to laugh. Then Maria started doing it too. And not because we were in front of Francis Alys.
Another sound, of a different sort got me a bit worried. When in Sanatorium ( one of the works in Karsaue) we participated in a kind of destiny -philosophical casino, where you had to ask 3 questions, then roll one of the 5 dices, including quotes out of 5 different philosophical schools ( greek, renaissance, buddism, german, french). My third questions was " Should I leave Berlin?" - and there the was this worrying sound coming from the journalist who was taking our pictures at the moment. How can I describe this sound... Ah yeah. A chuckle... I will keep this chuckle in mind.
