Moritz Kung is a cultural globalist. Swiss by nationality, he is married to the Spanish artist Dora Garcia and lived for a long time in Brussels. Moritz was curator at de Singel in Antwerp, where he made exhibitions about contemporary architecture and art, and was the driving force behind 'Curating the Library', a project that invited personalities from the (inter)national world of culture to present their favourite books. Today he is the new director of the centre of contemporary art El Canodromo/La Capella in Barcelona. He rarely reads himself, he says, but prefers to 'look at' books: artists' books. What attracts him to these sort of works is the repetitive and the conceptual, which a lot of people find dull. The books he chose include an oversized volume by Matt Mullican entitled 'That Person's Workbook' comprising drawings the artist made under hypnosis, 'Graphic Anatomy' by the Japanese architects Atelier Bow-Wow, Aglaia Konrad's book of photographs 'Desert Cities', Peter Pillar's extraordinary publication 'Archiv' about the analogies of newspaper cuttings and, though not an artists' book, the catalogue 'The Problem Perspective' about the work of artist Martin Kippenberger.
