This week marks the opening of Documenta, the Marshall Plan's gift to one of the Allied Forces' most frequented aerial targets, held every five years in the town of Kassel, Germany.

In this morning's Globe & Mail we saw three images of early-1930s Emily Carr paintings included in Documenta 13's "Tribute to the Women of Modernity" thematic, while last night Presentation House Gallery director Reid Shier telephoned from Kassel this image of Geoffrey Farmer's Leaves of Grass (2012), comprised of puppet-ized cut-outs from Life magazines and grasses from the artist's garden.
