Hans Haacke (1936-) Germany/USA

Hans Haacke was born in Germany and studied there at the Staatliche Werkakademie in Kassel before moving to the US in the early 1960s to continue his studies. His work focuses on processes and criticism of political systems, in which he tries to point out the symbiotic relationship between the art world and the business world.

In 1993 Haacke represented Germany at the Venice Biennale. He has a permanent installation at the Reichstag in Berlin.
