It presents the biggest retrospective of its shows in a country where the youth are increasingly taking to art appreciation.

It runs through the month.

This year, it is also one of the key activities to mark 45 years of diplomatic relations between China and Germany.

The ongoing show at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing displays more than 200 artworks that tell the story of Documenta's evolution in the past six decades.

The fair is considered as important as the Venice Biennial in Italy and the Sao Paulo Art Biennial in Brazil.
