Hans Christoph Haacke

Hans Haacke is a sculptor and conceptual artist born in 1936 in Cologne, Germany, who now lives and works in New York City.  Haacke was educated at the Staatl Werkakademie in Germany, 1956-60, Atelier 17, and the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, 1961-62 on a Fulbright Fellowship.  He became an instructor at Cooper Union in New York.

His highly political art has taken many forms over the years. In one work, he traced ownership of a particular painting to catalogue the rise in value of the work of art and bring into question the motives and function of buying art.  He was outspoken about his beliefs that museums and galleries were often used by the wealthy to seduce public opinion.
