OBRIST, Hans Ulrich
Somewhere Totally Else
Since 2012, Hans Ulrich Obrist has made a weekly contribution to Das Magazin, the weekend supplement of the Swiss Tages-Anzeiger newspaper, offering, in the style of a diary, a survey of contemporary art and cultural current affairs. Week after week he reports on the main events, hot topics, and relevant issues of our times through the lens of his extensive curiosity.
Proposing a very open, cross-disciplinary, and globalized mapping of the 2010s, this anthology also reveals the “cosmology” of this global citizen par excellence: from Etel Adnan and Lina Bo Bardi to Fischli/Weiss, from the importance of sharing and interdisciplinary thinking to the legacy of Édouard Glissant and the need to take into account climate change.
