In search of congestion on the M25 London Orbital Motorway, UK
A bus tour of the M25 motorway during peak Friday evening congestion with a very busy Hans Ulrich Obrist, artist Richard Wentworth, Artschool/UK participants and invited guests. Getting stuck in the evening congestion on the M25 for several hours made it impossible for Hans Ulrich Obrist in particular and others in general to manage their time as they would have wished thus allowing a lengthy conversation to take place about the particular constellation of people I had brought together in London for Artschool/UK and how lasting these relationships might be, as the relationship between Hans Ulrich Obrist and Richard Wentworth has been. The bus tour also allowed for an encounter with customers in a fast food diner just off the M25 as we needed to stop somewhere for a toilet break and something to eat.
This was Hans Ulrich Obrist’s first ‘bus-conversation’.
