As social distancing requirements remain necessary, and many around the world are experiencing renewed calls to stay home, ICI and Hans Ulrich Obrist are expanding do it (home) with a new version of the project that features 55 artists' instructions. These include new commissions as well as recent contributions from do it (around the world) at the Serpentine Galleries and do it (australia), produced by Kaldor Art Projects.
Explore this additional collection of do it (home) instructions that will take you away from your screens, and recreate an art experience at home. You will respond to the artists’ call, follow their lead, enter their world, and realize an artwork on their behalf. When you're ready to return to the screen, share that you did it!

do it (home) was first conceived by Obrist and produced by ICI in 1995, as a collection of do it instructions that could easily be realized in one’s own home. In Spring 2020, in response to the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, a new version of do it (home) was launched. “do it has always taken place in public and in private—spheres of life that for many have coalesced in recent months,” said Obrist.
do it (home) exists in English and Spanish on ICI’s website, and is available through more than 50 collaborating art spaces from within ICI’s international network.
