artist / participant
Hans Haacke (1936), a German-born artist living in New York since the 1960s, is one of the pioneers and main representatives of what is known as institutional critique. In his work he looks at the different ways that political and economic institutions make use of prestige in the art sphere. The exhibition examines the relationships between art, patronage and advertising and is made up of his most recent project, which focuses on the Spanish situation, and some of his pre-existing pieces.
