Ich War Ein Fremdling Und Ihr Habt Mich Beherbergt

"I Was A Stranger And You Took Me In"

That resonates in me as a traveller.  From Documenta 14, Olu Oguibe's Das Fremdlinge Und Flüchtlinge Monument currently at Königsplatz, Kassel:

Documenta 14: Friedrichsplatz

I'll switch gear to Kassel the next few days ...

As always, there was so much to see at Documenta 14 (up until September 17) that I had to reluctantly miss quite a bit, with only two full days in Kassel.  I have already published a couple of posts on this year's Documenta when I was still there a few weeks ago.  I'm going to post some more highlights in the upcoming days.  Today I'm going to focus on some exhibits seen at Friedrichsplatz.
