The first art project for documenta 12 was launched in an apprentice workshop in Kassel: the social sculpture, Would you like to participate in an artistic experience? by the Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum. A total of twenty steel objects will now be migrating through different households and meeting points on three continents, through towns and cities such as Kassel, Ljubljana, Mexico City or Dakar. They will be altered by their temporary owners, and will themselves change. They are "unreasonable, fitting-in nowhere so they pose a challenge", as Roger M. Buergel commented. The documentation of this journey will be presented in June 2007, for documenta 12.
Gardending Superfund Sites is an art project that fosters discourse around the issues of nature preservation, industry, and activism. Information and workshops with students and community groups to create a call to action to high tech industries to take responsibility for their actions.
