For the next three weeks at the Artist’s Institute (April 4–21), Hans Haacke will exhibit Condensation Cube (1963-65) alongside We (all) are the People (2003-2018) and related photographs. We (all) are the People is a poster he made for documenta 14, 2017, in Athens and Kassel. Its slogan is translated, for this New York iteration, into the languages of major immigrant populations that have come to the United States in recent years, legally or illegally. Among the twelve languages are Arab, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Haitian Creole. The poster will be exhibited in the gallery and on the Hunter College campus. Additional copies will be made available to visitors to put up around the city.
This exhibition is part of the fourteenth season of the Artist’s Institute with Madeline Hollander, Sean Raspet, and Sam Lewitt. Hans Haacke‘s work with real-time systems is important to all three artists, and this exhibition is Haacke‘s response to our invitation to display Condensation Cube as part of the season.
