He has organised several large exhibitions, including Westkunst (1981) in the Messehallen, Cologne; von hier aus (1984) in the Messe, Düsseldorf; and Der zerbrochene Spiegel (1993) in Vienna and Hamburg. Together with Klaus Bußmann, he co-initiated and organised sculpture projects muenster in 1977 with following editions in 1987, 1997 and 2007. From 2000 to 2012 he was the Director of the Museum Ludwig, Cologne.

        This film was produced by Leon Golub in 1995 as a contribution to the 'do it' project. Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, 'do it' began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between Obrist and the artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier. Obrist was concerned with how exhibition formats could be rendered more flexible and open-ended. The result is an ongoing exhibition that consists of instructions set out by artists for anyone to follow.
