Talking Art, a series of interviews with artists, is an exciting new collaboration between Tate Modern and Art Monthly that will take place on Saturday afternoons in the Starr Auditorium. The series kicks off with a conversation between Patricia Bickers, editor of Art Monthly, and the distinguished artist, Hans Haacke, whose controversial installation Germania shared the Golden Lion prize, with Nam June Paik, for the German Pavilion in the 1993 Venice Biennale. Hans Haacke’s incisive, unflinchingly political works expose systems of power and influence and often court controversy. While many of his works have examined the ethics of multinational corporations he has equally turned his attention to power relations in the art world itself. He last showed in Britain at the Serpentine Gallery in collaboration with the V&A, and has recently had two major retrospectives of his work in his native Germany.
