Raymond Pettibon


What is going on in this photo? "What's goin' on" is more like it. The work in the photo is part of a larger work. Is this a new work completed specifically for Documenta? Has the new context changed the piece at all? Yes and yes. The context changed the piece. Curated it. Cut, collaged, however you want to put it nicely. Is this work a part of an ongoing series? No. I hope not. But I'm never great at predicting or deciding when a work is finished. Haven't the control [sigh]. What were some of the considerations or chal- lenges involved in bringing this piece to Germany? Editing, cutting, shaping, saving what I can.
