Douglas Gordon's I had nowhere to go at documenta 14, CineStar, Kassel, Germany.
On view June 8 through September 17, 2017.
documenta 14 is founded on several important institutional partnerships in Athens and Kassel. Each of these individual relationships with institutions—and the people who make them work—results in specific programming, research, and collaborative projects. Working together with partner institutions, documenta 14 points to a public sphere that is non-exclusionary and defined by encounters and possibilities—a public sphere in space and time.
Screening at the CineStar in Kassel is Douglas Gordon’s I had nowhere to go (2016), which draws from the diaries of Jonas Mekas. Gordon’s film uses only a few images. Instead, Mekas’s voice, recounting his daily life as a young immigrant, fills the air.
