Hans Haacke

Hans Haacke

with Stephanie Barron and Norman M. Klein

Co-presented with the CalArts graduate Aesthetics and Politics Program, the Paul Brach Lecture Series, and LACMA.

"A perennial whistle-blower... investigating, exposing, and protesting, refusing to be silent in the face of corporate crime, governmental corruption, and art-world mischief." Jan Avgikos, Artforum

Influential artist and muckraker Hans Haacke has fought for honesty in the political representation of the arts for some 45 years. Now his attention is focused on the widening economic crisis and the slackening of the death-grip of neoliberalism. Haacke is joined by LACMA senior curator Stephanie Barron for a conversation on the cultural rules of engagement, now and in the future, and the place of art at the complex intersection of aesthetic and political discourses. Intellectual historian, media theorist and novelist Norman M. Klein introduces and moderates the discussion. Haacke, who teaches at The Cooper Union, has shown his work at venues around the world, including several editions of Documenta, Skulptur Projekte Münster, and the Venice Biennale.
