Well-known curator and art scene networker Hans Ulbricht Obrist gave an insight into his journey from a young art enthusiast curating his first art show in his kitchen – “27 people attended”, he remembered – into a globally working and thinking influencer who defines the future of his industry.

To explain how his own profession as a curator has evolved from taking care of dead objects to actively creating connected spaces for art, Obrist showed his Instagram account. “First, I didn't know what to post. I didn't want to post selfies, I didn't want to post food, or artist's studios.” Then he discovered handwritten art by befriended artists as a way to fill his feed and also drive a mission: fighting the disappearance of handwriting in the digital age. Through this approach, his Instagram account has become a daily gallery with handwritten works from world famous artists, ranging from Olafur Eliasson to Zaha Hadid, and almost 200.000 followers. “We can now all do our own museum in a DYI way”, Obricht said, stating that useful art – entering social and political spaces, supported by digital tools – in his view is still the most future-oriented.
