Hans Haacke for real: Works 1959 2006
HAMBURG  •  Deichtorhallen  •  Ongoing

Deichtorhallen in Hamburg and Akademie der Künste in Berlin are presenting the first retrospective of the German-born Hans Haacke in his homeland. The exhibition is organized in two locations, with 71 works from the artist's own collection and several international museums and lenders.

This joint exhibition includes, in both venues, installations, sculptures, photographs, paintings and text works from 1959 until today. The emphasis in Hamburg is on early works as well as on works which deal with the economy, business and sponsorship. In Berlin, at the Pariser Platz, the Akademie der Künste presents works in which history and politics play the dominant role.

Hans Haacke conceived new installations for both Hamburg and Berlin. Innen/Außen: Spiegelfechterei at Deichtorhallen brings the outside environment into the exhibition space, while Kein schöner Land at Akademie der Künste addresses xenophobia in Germany today.
