Abstract:

"Think Like Clouds collects for the first time the drawings, notes and diagrams of curator Hans Ulrich Obrist. For the past twenty-two years, Obrist has curated exhibitions worldwide and has interviewed personalities in nearly every field of endeavor: from architect Rem Koolhaas to artist Gerhard Richter to author and historian Studs Terkel. During conversations and curatorial work he draws and takes notes obsessively in order to help him remember and expand the topic at hand. But what ends up being drawn on hotel stationery or printouts of emails are more than mere memory aids. They are visual portraits of conversations or exhibitions made up of names, dates, quotes, and loose bits of information entangled in wavering lines and undulating scribbles. Taken as a whole, Think Like Clouds maps the intellectual and historical terrain of one of the most active and curious minds in contemporary art today. With an introduction by Paul Chan and an essay by Michael Diers"--Page 4 of cover.
