London Road Conversations 2008
HANS ULRICH OBRIST
The Co-Director of the Serpentine Gallery London has curated over 150 exhibitions internationally since 1991. He conducted seven minute interviews with Kuoni's Mini Marathon participants:
“We felt that it would be interesting to do talks and lectures similar to the Serpentine Gallery Manifesto Marathon exhibitions, only this time specifically targeting the travel topic. So we invited diverse protagonists to lend us their vision and their manifesto for the 21st century, thus significantly targeting travel — both in terms of the mind as well as a physical deplacement.”
Born 1976 in the USA the artist is now living in London. He works in sculpture, film and performance and also performs with his experimental band “The Errorists”.
