140 Artists’ Ideas for Planet Earth
  • 140 Artists’ Ideas for Planet Earth

  • Through 140 drawings, thought experiments, recipes, activist instructions, gardening ideas, insurgences and personal revolutions, artists who spend their lives thinking outside the box guide you to a new worldview; where you and the planet are one.

    Everything here is new and has not been displayed before. We invite you to rip out pages; to hang them up at home, to draw and scribble, to cook, to meditate, to take the book to your nearest green space.
    In the tradition of Hans Ulrich Obrist's wildly successful Do It project, this is a guidebook for shaping our ecological future.

    Liberate yourself from the ways of thinking that have separated us from our environment, and find your way back to our planet.

    Featuring Olafur Eliasson, Etel Adnan, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Judy Chicago, Jane Fonda & Swoon, the Black Quantum Futurism Collective, Vivienne Westwood, Cauleen Smith, Marina Abramovic, the Karrabing Film Collective, and many more.

Hans Ulrich Obrist is a curator and writer. Since 2006 he has been co-director of the Serpentine Gallery, London. He is the author of Ways of Curating and, with Ai Weiwei, of Ai Weiwei Speaks.
