Publication for Haegue Yang: VIP’s Union 2001 – 2018

This book is printed on the occasion of Haegue Yang´s nine-month presentation of VIP´s Union at Kunsthaus Graz. The exhibition unfolded in two phases:Phase I involved furniture, loaned by private individuals, which was widely used throughout the building; Phase II collected and presented the objects in one of the exhibitions spaces, altering their status from (usable) furniture to exhibits.

VIP´s Union at Kunsthaus Graz followed mutations of the project at Art Forum Berlin (2001), Arnolfini, Bristol (2011), M HKA – Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (2014), Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn (2014), and Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2015). A genealogy; reference projects; texts by Nav Haq, Katrin Bucher Trantow, and Barbara Steiner; and a conversation with Haegue Yang provide multiple views on the nature and evolution of the project over the years.

The book launch will take place at the publishing house BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE’s new space ELGARAFI BOM DIA.
