Hans Ulrich Obrist and the night train

“The beginning of my whole journey was night trains. It’s a slow way of travelling and now we are working with Tino [Seghal] and Olafur [Eliasson] on solar airplanes. They fly at a hundred miles an hour, so it would be a little bit like travelling on a night train. Travelling might get slower again, if it’s sustainable. All my shows have been conceived on night trains: the kitchen show, the hotel show, the Robert Walser museum, “Cloaca Maxima” in the drainage museum. I would take a night train and reflect on the conversations I’ve had with artists like Boetti or Fischli and Weiss and arrive in the next city. Somehow that night train rhythm was an idea factory”
