Among New York dealers, Marian Goodman is the undisputed queen of Documenta 13—or dOCUMENTA (13), if you prefer. Her gallery is sending a full 10 artists to the exhibition, as Art in America’s Brian Boucher pointed out last month.

Internationally, though, Ms. Goodman has at least one close competitor, the redoubtable Mexico City gallery Kurimanzutto (or kurimanzutto, if you prefer), which announced today it has eight artists in the exhibition in Kassel, Germany. Those artists are:

— Abraham Cruzvillegas
— Adrián Villar Rojas
— Allora & Calzadilla
— Anri Sala
— Apichatpong Weerasethakul
— Jimmie Durham
— Rirkrit Tiravanija
— Roman Ondák

Kurimanzutto has been in fine form in the e-mailing department lately, having just last week sent out a message with the subject line “Long live the students,” in support of the Mexican political reform movement #YoSoy132, which read in part:

We are now witnessing a historical movement by which college youths all over the country, take organised action in order to shape a better future for Mexico

– We salute movement #YoSoy132
