HUO is a semi-fictional portrait of the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist in which he asks questions that remain unanswered. In the last 20 years Obrist has conducted more than 1500 interviews with artists, architects, writers, musicians, designers, philosophers and scientists. In HUO, Obrist appears in various locations over a period of ten years. Questions are asked, reflected on and recited in the Pavilion of the Serpentine Gallery (London) in 2006, the Hilton Hotel in Heathrow in 2010 and the Snowden Aviary in the London Zoo in 2014. In the film, Obrist comes to the conclusion that some interviews remain unrealised. He studies an interview by the filmmaker Alexander Kluge with Jean-Luc Godard and performs the addressing of questions in front of the camera.
