The Archipelago Conversations

Édouard Glissant & Hans Ulrich Obrist

Regular price $28.00

The Archipelago Conversations is based on 15 years of conversations between Caribbean philosopher Édouard Glissant and his friend Hans Ulrich Obrist. It marks the tenth anniversary of Glissant's passing. Translation by Emma Ramadan.

Hans Ulrich Obrist met the Martinique-born philosopher, poet, and revolutionary Édouard Glissant in the mid-nineties; the encounter influenced the direction of Obrist's work for years to come. As one of today's most prolific producers of culture, Obrist has left an indelible mark and Glissant, in part, through him. Throughout 2021, during the pandemic and ten years after Glissant's death, Obrist has edited, reworked, and arranged their conversations in their entirety for the first time. The Archipelago Conversations is the result: a book designed to introduce the most important philosopher of the 21st Century to a broad, public audience - a ready-to-hand tool for building an interdependent Earth.
