An Exhibition Always Hides Another ExhibitionTexts on Hans Ulrich Obrist

Hans Ulrich Obrist - An Exhibition Always Hides Another Exhibition
A collection of essays and portraits on one of the most influential art critic and curator of today.
An Exhibition Always Hides Another Exhibition is a collective portrait of Hans Ulrich Obrist composed by friends, collaborators, admirers, and inquisitors. From personal anecdotes to analytic estimations to visual representations, the contributions respond to the questions that frame the book: Who is HUO? What does HUO do? What has HUO done?

Hans Ulrich Obrist’s every undertaking is a journey. Here, it is a journey into his own night, that of his memories, of his life. Since his childhood he has looked to go further, with the Swiss mountains as the first horizon for him to cross. And go further he has. From one thing to the next, moving but never stopping.
Etel Adnan
