Hans Ulrich Obrist
Season 2 · Episode 6
Born in Switzerland in 1968, Hans Ulrich Obrist — or HUO as he is known to his colleagues — is without a doubt the world's most influential living art curator. Based in London-Kensington, since 2006 he has worked as the Co-Director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects at the Serpentine Galleries. He catapulted to fame through his “Interview Project,“ an ongoing series of 3000 + interviews that he started in the early nineties. Published over the years in countless books, magazines and catalogues and referred to by Obrist as “an endless conversation”— the project features interviews, talks and conversations with artists, writers, philosophers, curators, architects, scientists and musicians. Exclusively on STRRR TV, HUO shares with us video clips by and about the Swiss artist duo Fischli und Weiss, the Martinique-born philosopher and poet Edouard Glissant as well as the great US singer and rapper Chance The Rapper (and many more).
