Item description for Hans Haacke: Mia San Mia (We Are Who We Are) by Sabine Breitwieser Christian Kravagna...
Long known for bringing trenchant analyses of sociopolitical structures into the museum, Hans Haacke has in the past exposed corporations who use art sponsorship to booster their image and slum landlords who hide behind diversified corporations. In his first exhibition in Vienna, the title of which gives its name to this book, Haacke tackles Austria's emotionally laden understanding of its own history and national identity. A larger discourse on "the culture of memory" weaves its way through selected historical works of Haacke's, including his 1999 project for the Reichstag, as well as through the artist's own writings, available here for the first time.
