Synopsis: Born in Cologne in 1936 and based in New York since 1965, Haacke's strong political, cultural and social concerns are reflected in his installations, texts and sculptures. Throughout his fifty-year career Haacke has frequently changed the presentation of his art to get his message across. Often borrowing from non-art sources such as corporate advertising, questionnaires or scientific experimentation, Haacke is probably the most successful and best-known late twentieth-century artist to create a political art that manages to hit its mark with succinct elegance. Haacke sometimes works almost as a sleuth-like reporter, uncovering museum politics in his art. exhibitions. For example, his 1971 one-person show at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, was cancelled in response to his proposal to present the questionable real estate dealings of several New York companies. Though he began as a painter in the late 1950s, Hans Haacke soon began to make works such as Raintower (1962) which drew on natural energies and forces. Subsequent works, for example the opinion-based MOMA-Poll (1970), encouraged active audience participation. The artist is particularly admired for his research into the art world's hidden economies and politics, as well as into repressed histories of places and people. Bevolkerung [To The Population, 1999]) have often drawn immense controversy. Haacke is a unique figure in post-war art, and his work has touched on such diverse movements as Conceptual, Pop, Minimal and Land art. His integrity as well as the formal innovations of his art have proven hugely influential for many generations of contemporary artists. Haacke has presented solo exhibitions in such museums as the Tate Gallery, London (1984); the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, and tour (1986); and the Musee nationale d'art moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (1989), among others. Haacke has participated in such landmark group exhibitions as 'When Attitudes Become Form', Kunsthalle Bern, and tour (1969), and 'Information' at The Museum of Modern Art, New York (1970). He has been featured in four Documentas, Kassel (1972, 1982, 1987 and 1997), both 'Skulptur. Projekte in Munster' exhibitions (1987 and 1997), and three Venice Biennales (1976, 1978 and 1993).

About the Author: Walter Grasskamp is a critic and art historian and is Professor of Art History at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. He has written on Haacke for his exhibitions at the Tate Gallery, London (1984) the Fundacio Antoni Tapies, Barcelona (Obra Social, 1995) and the German Pavilion at the 45th Venice Biennale (1993). Molly Nesbit is Professor in the Department of Art at Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York, and is author of Atget's Seven Albums (1992) and Their Common Sense (2000).

Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Born in Cologne in 1936 and based in New York since 1965, Haacke s strong political, cultural and social concerns are reflected in his installations, texts and sculptures. Throughout his 50-year career Haacke has frequently changed the presentation of his art to get his message across. Often borrowing from non-art sources such as corporate advertising, questionnaires or scientific experimentation, Haacke is probably the most successful and best-known late twentieth century artist to create political art that manages to hit its mark with such concision and elegance. Haacke sometimes works like a sleuth, uncovering the art world s hidden politics and economics. This practice has famously led to museum officials cancelling his exhibitions. His 1971 solo show at the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, New York, for example, was cancelled in response to his proposal to present the questionable real estate dealings of several New York companies. Haacke is a unique figure in post-war art, and his work has touched on such diverse movements as Conceptual, Pop, Minimal and Land art. Highly respected as a writer and thinker, his integrity as well as the formal innovations of his art have proven hugely influential for many generations of contemporary artists via exhibitions at such museums as the Tate Gallery, London (1984), the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (1986), and the Centre Pompidou, Paris (1989).German art historian Walter Grasskamp surveys the artist s career with an emphasis on the innovations he has brought to the notion of public art. In the Interview, American art historian Molly Nesbit discusses with the artist his working practices and his sometimes turbulent relationship with the art world. London-based critic Jon Bird focuses on Mixed Messages, Haacke s presentation of works from the collection of London s Victoria and Albert Museum and Serpentine Gallery. The Artist s Choice, excerpts from Writing the Truth: Five Difficulties by Bertolt Brecht, reflects Haacke s approach to his own work. The Artist s Writings include an excerpt from Free Exchange (1995), his book-length conversation with Pierre Bourdieu, and an essay on his controversial project for the Reichstag in Berlin (1999-2000).
