Quote of Note | Hans Ulrich Obrist

Pages from the Moleskine of Hans Ulrich Obrist

“Unrealized projects are something I find quite interesting. A lot of practitioners have unrealized dreams which they would like to realize but of which they never talk. I’ve very interested in this idea. ‘What actually are our dreams?’ Because that can make them happen. That is the only recurring question in all my interviews….My one unrealized project is to have a palace of all these unrealized projects. It is sort of an irony because whenever I get close to realizing it, something goes wrong. It is almost as though in the nature of the project it will not be realized.” -Ubercurator, interlocutor, writer, and critic Hans Ulrich Obrist
