Community of Absence
This publication is another extension of Yank`s research, elaborating further on the seemingly contradictory and estranging concept of “community of absence”. It is not a catalouge or artist`s monograph in the traditional sense, as its ambition is not to represent the exhibition at BAK or a specific series of works, but rather to map the trajectory and movement towards a new community to come as envisioned in her work. Yang actively engages other cultural practioniers in her research - in this way, she creates a community of her own.
hrsg. von Binna Choi in Verbindung zu der Ausstellung “Haegue Yang: Unevently” im BAK (basis voor actuele kunst) in Utrecht vom 23. April bis 18. Juni 2006, mit Texten von Maria Hlavajova, Binna Choi, Lars Bang Larsen, Nina Möntmann, Haegue Yang.
