Hans Ulrich Obrist: Do It

One of the most loved references regarding institutional critique and exhibition making is the imaginary museum by André Malraux. Malraux was playing with his almost infinite collection of images, building possibilities escaping from a box. The combination of images and the almost infinite number of options opened the exhibition to become a flexible time defined by possible connections.

In 1993, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist had a conversation with artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier that led to the idea to offer instructions to produce “do it yourself” exhibitions. For this Aural Exhibition, Hans Ulrich Obrist selects some instructions resulting in a continuum relating to ecology, artistic practices, poetic gestures, history, the present and the future.
