Beginning of the 90′s Hans Ulrich Obrist started to record his ongoing conversations with artists, taking place in non-staged surroundings like trains, cafés or studios. This setting creates very personal chats, that are entertaining, meandering, revealing and enigmatic. Here he chose nineteen conversations, just a small fraction of the 2500 hours recorded, offering the reader an intimate view into the creative processes of artists and their varying approaches. A lot of these conversations where recorded over years and therefor are giving a sense of how their thinking evolved over time.

Conversations with: David Hockney,Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Elaine Strutevant, Ernest Mancoba, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Frank Gehry, Gerhard Richter, Gilbert & George, Louise Bourgeois, Marina Abramovic, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Nancy Spero, Oscar Niemeyer, Philippe Parreno, Rem Koolhaas, Richard Hamilton, Sanaa, Tino Sehgal and Zaha Hadid
