CORY REYNOLDS | DATE 6/19/2018
Join Hans Ulrich Obrist on Saturday, June 23 at 4pm in the MoMA PS1 Book Space to celebrate the release of his new book, Somewhere Totally Else (illustrated by David Shrigley), and to pick up a signed copy. The event is free and open to the public. Pre-order signed copies by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hans Ulrich Obrist's new book, Somewhere Totally Else (JRP|Ringier) compiles the Swiss curator's weekly thoughts on culture into an anthology that cements what we already knew about Obrist: he is curious, dedicated and gifted, and his writings meld those positives into small, jumbled stories. Somewhere Totally Else gathers Obrist's diary-like entries from 2012-17 in Das Magazine, the weekend insert of the Swiss-national newspaper, Tages Anzeiger. As a cultural contributor, Obrist reports weekly on global events from a quite personal perspective—the entries read as warm and dear, with two to three small pages dedicated to stories of experiences with contemporary artists, Obrist's morning rituals, new technologies up for review, and more. Illustrations by David Shrigley.
