It’s Urgent! A Luma project curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist

Walther König

Produced by Luma Foundation and conceived by curator and Serpentine Galleries Artistic Director Hans Ulrich Obrist, the book features all 153 original posters created by the 127 artists invited to participate in IT'S URGENT!, an open form touring exhibition which started in 2019 in Denmark's Heartland Festival hosted by Kunsthal Charlottenborg, during the election campaign for the European Parliament. The project expanded later at Luma Westbau in Zurich (Switzerland) in 2019/2020. It was presented more recently at Luma Arles, in the Parc des Ateliers (Arles, France) in the summer of 2020, and we are confident it will continue to evolve in other venues around the world in the near future. IT'S URGENT! aims to make the artists' ideas available to all, open up to new audiences and insert them into public life and the community at large. Artists from all over the world responded to this invitation to address the most pressing themes of our times - ecology, inequality, common future, solidarity, anti-racism and social justice had a profound presence in this vast ensemble of creative endeavour.
