Hans Haacke: All Connected
A pioneer of institutional critique, conceptual art, and environmental art, artist Hans Haacke creates incisive, often site-specific works that call upon the viewer to engage or participate and thereby question invisible structural dynamics at play in society. This monograph, designed by IN-FO.CO and published by Phaidon and the New Museum, surveys the storied career of the German artist on the occasion of a major retrospective exhibition at the New Museum in New York. The book’s direct presentation encompasses Haacke’s trajectory from kinetic minimalism to more conceptual work based on institutional critique. This book offers an opportunity to revisit the artist’s thought-provoking career in light of contemporary culture.
