Hans Ulrich Obrist is an art curator, critic and historian. He is the Co-Director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects at the Serpentine Gallery, London.
In his book Formulas for Now, John Pickering and the Inversion Principle appear alongside eminent contributors from a wide variety of fields as they explore their own personal formulas for negotiating contemporary life.
‘Many of the most creative and original minds of our time - more than a hundred from the worlds of art, science, mathematics, architecture, design, performance, literature and sociology - give us their personal and enterprising, or visionary, or inventive, or novel, or just deliriously delectable, formulas for contemporary life.’
