HANS ULRICH OBRIST
A series of conversations held in 2011 with artists, filmmakers, writers and even the former mayor of Bogotá serendipitously turned into a mapping of the artistic landscape in Colombia's art scene just as it is exploding internationally. This volume is a collaborative event: artists Beatriz González, Mateo López, Bernardo Ortiz, Gabriel Sierra and José Antonio Suárez Londoño worked closely with Hans Ulrich Obrist on the naming, design and rendering of this journey into a book. The 17 interviews published here invite the reader to join Obrist's ongoing conversation about Colombia. Interviewees include Álvaro Barrios, María Fernanda Cardoso, Antonio Caro, Danilo Dueñas, Beatriz González, Mateo López, María Angélica Medina, Jorge Orlando Melo, Antanas Mockus, Oscar Muñoz, Bernardo Ortiz, Luis Ospina, María Isabel Rueda, Gabriel Sierra, Doris Salcedo, José Antonio Suárez Londoño and Juan Gabriel Vásquez.
