Uses of the Document in Contemporary Art, curated by Okwui Enwezor, which was on view at the International Center of Photography, New York (18.01–04.05.2008).

Artists in the exhibition included: Tacita Dean, Stan Douglas, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Zoe Leonard, Walid Raad, Thomas Ruff, Anri Sala, Fazal Sheikh, Eyal Sivan, Lorna Simpson, Vivan Sundaram, Nomeda and Gediminas Urbonas, Andy Warhol, etc.
