The annual Verbier Art Summit provides an alternative approach to fostering and shaping a global dialogue on the visual arts. Verbier | Art Untold organizes the summit in partnership with a yearly rotating art institution. This book is the outcome of the 2017 edition of the summit, organized in cooperation with museum director Beautrix Ruf and her curatorial team at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Ruf chose the theme of the 2017 iteration, based on her personal experiences of institutions and their increase in scale, but also about issues that every museum is faced with, struggles with, reflects on how to address and considers in a self-critical way. Other contributors to the volume include Dave Beech, Daniel Birnbaum, Benjamin Bratton, Mark Fisher, Cissie Fu, Rem Koolhaas, Christopher Kulendran Thomas, Tobias Madison, Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, Tino Sehgal, Nicholas Serota, Anneliek Sijbrandij and John Slyce.
