Synopses & Reviews
Since 2012, Hans Ulrich Obrist (born 1968) has made a weekly contribution to Das Magazin, the weekend supplement of the Swiss Tages-Anzeiger newspaper.
His weekly column offers a survey of contemporary art and current cultural affairs in the style of a diary.
Offering an open and globalized mapping of the culture of the 2010s, Obrist's writings for Das Magazin are collected in Weekly Advice for the first time. The anthology also serves as a portrait, revealing the personal cosmology of this curious-about-everything global citizen par excellence: Obrist writes on everything from Etel Adnan and Lina Bo Bardi to Fischli/Weiss, from the importance of sharing and interdisciplinary thinking to the legacy of Edouard Glissant.
Weekly Advice collects 100 entries written between 2012 and 2017, with drawings by British artist David Shrigley.
