I’m proud to have worldwide renowned art curator and artistic director of London’s Serpentine Galleries Hans Ulrich Obrist as my guest in today’s episode. Hans Ulrich is very special in many ways, as with never-ending energy he is calling out for the urgency to make a contribution to the world every single day. This is exactly what matters most to him.

Hans Ulrich is sharing with us how he already as a little boy curated his child room with art post cards, how he sees his entire life as a chain reaction ever since his 1st studio visit at Swiss artist duo Fischli/Weiss, watching the film “Der Lauf der Dinge/The Way Things Go”, and how the discovery of art books built the basis for his entire world of thinking and feeling. He has agglomerated a library of more than 10.000 books, and seemingly reads as much as he is traveling and connecting people – all at once.
“We need to think whom we can bring together, that’s what we need to do every day”, Hans Ulrich says. We will also hear from him how the entire art world will change with the pandemic and what it means for the future of personal encounters.
“I think it’s so important that we unlearn and relearn our old patterns of thinking and storytelling, in a way that allows us to be in communion with our environment” he states, quoting the self-acclaimed queer black troublemaker Alexis Pauline Gumbs.

Hans Ulrich embodies an inexhaustible source of meaningful ideas to me and it feels just impossible to do him justice in this podcast.
So get ready for a most inspiring journey with a walking powerhouse….
