Hans Ulrich Obrist Conversation Series

This affordable and accessible series from the renowned German art book publisher and bookseller Walther König collects conversations between curator and culture activator Hans Ulrich Obrist and other seminal and emerging figures in the worlds of art, architecture and ideas. Obrist's interest in interviews was first triggered by two very long conversations that he read when he was a student. One was between Pierre Cabanne and Marcel Duchamp, and the other between David Sylvester and Francis Bacon. "These books somehow brought me to art," he has said. "They were like oxygen, and were the first time that the idea of an interview with an artist as a medium became of interest to me. They also sparked my interest in the idea of sustained conversations—of interviews recorded over a period of time, perhaps over the course of many years; the Bacon/Sylvester interviews took place over three long sessions, for example." All of the books in this series are designed by the Paris graphic design team, M/M.
