Trips can have at least two objectives: take selfies or delve into a story, a character, a theme. Documenta 14 is an exhibition of contemporary art of worldwide significance in which more than one hundred artists participate: its particularity lies in the fact that it takes place every five years, since 1955, and remains on display for almost two hundred days.
"Sur" is not only the chronicle of a trip, of a stay and a tour of documenta 14, Yenuen Díaz delivers, in his own words, "a book of maps and labyrinths. The chronicle of a trip where temporalities and geographies swing in the framework as if it were a Newton's pendulum". It is a story that describes the thought of the traveler reflected in the landscapes that contemporary art evokes.
