This tebook is Hans Ulrich Obrist's homage to the French author, poet and philosopher Edouard Glissant (1928-2011). Glissant, one of the most influential figures of the French-speaking Caribbean and a pioneer of postcolonial thinking, called attention to means of global exchange which do t homogenize culture but produce a difference from which new things can emerge. Obrist encountered Glissant at the beginning of his career, through the recommendation of Alighiero Boetti. In his introduction, Obrist creates a multilayered portrait of the intellectual, laying out some of his key concepts: the creolization of the world, archipelic thought, and the museum as archipelago, as well as utopia. These ideas are explored by Glissant in a selection of title pages of his books with drawings, tations and poetic dedications that are reproduced here in facsimile.
