This out-of-sequence first volume in Hans Ulrich Obrist's Conversation Series is devoted to the influential cult comics artist, Robert Crumb-creator of Fritz the Cat, Zap Comics and Mr. Natural, among many other iconic underground mainstays. Both Obrist and Crumb are great conversationalists, and here they make a great match:
Obrist: Could you tell me a little bit about how you feel about America and world politics right now?
Crumb: Well, when I was young I really believed in the revolution. I don't really believe in revolution any more; I'm too old now. I think that any violent over-turning of a government or society causes a reaction that is bad or worse than the thing that they were revolting against to begin with... In the early 1970s I believed in that whole thing. I had basically left-wing sympathies but, I don't know, as someone said about communism: great idea, wrong species!

Robert Crumb was born in Philadelphia in 1943. His first cartooning efforts as a child were inspired by his older brother Charles, with whom he would collaborate on elaborate comic book projects. He left home at age 19 to become a greeting card artist in Cleveland and later moved to San Francisco, where, after experimenting with LSD, he founded ZAP Comix. He is considered the father of the underground comics movement in America, and his characters Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural have become counterculture icons. His work has been featured in numerous publications, galleries, and museum shows, and he is the subject of the Terry Zwygoff documentary Crumb. In 1993 he traded six of his sketchbooks for a house in a remote village in the south of France, where he now lives.
Hans-Ulrich Obrist was born in 1968 in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1993, he founded the Museum Robert Walser and began to run the Migrateurs program at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris where he served as a Curator for contemporary art. He presently serves as the Co-Director of Exhibitions and Programs and Director of International Projects at the Serpentine Gallery, London.
