: the problem with her description of the Hans Haacke installation
: is that she strips it off its political content and
: reduces it to an experimental, purley psychological
: event.. this is to my understanding a complete
: misreading of Haacke's piece...
: no way, Haacke isn't interesting to talk to our
: psyche but to problematize a specific history in an outspoke way.... a history
: Kristeva alludes to it only in one sentense in a very
: abstract way...
: that was to me very disappointing
- your remark to the way who kristeva is considering the hans haacke piece
in Venice 1993 is interesting; but the very psychological point of view
developped by kristeva, forgetting the political issue in Haackes work, is
perhaps also a sign how difficult it is (or can be) for a large public, who
is not familiar with the art theories in general and the work of Haacke, to
perceive the political issue in Haackes work...
