Description:
Description: Hans Haacke (b.1936) Helmsboro Country (unfolded), 1990 silkscreen print in two parts, one with photographic vignettes applied, this work number 6 from the edition of 36 40 x 30 in., 101.6 x 76.3 cm (overall dimensions) Exhibited: New York, John Weber Gallery, Helmsboro Country, 1990. This edition was published along side the major installation 'Helmsboro Country' which the artist conceived for various institutions worldwide, in which the main sculpture was a giant packet of Marlboro cigarettes, made with silkscreen prints on wood, with the Marlboro packaging text altered and the giant cigarettes inside comprised of rolled up reproductions of the Bill of Rights. This work, of course, makes a direct reference to Jesse Helms, a conservative member of the Senate at the time, who was tied to tobacco lobbying. During his career, Helms not only wanted to close down the National Endowment for the Arts, but also censored and suppressed artists and their exhibitions. The work is a call for freedom of speech whilst simultaneously acknowledging the fact that tobacco companies had become one of the most prolific donors of museums in the 1990s. Haacke proposed, "art works are no longer private affairs," and that art institutions and museums were "on the slippery road to becoming public relations agents for the interests of big business and its ideological allies." For Haacke, art for art's sake no longer existed as he saw art institutions and museums as biased political bodies.

This exhibition later traveled to Saskatoon, Mendel Art Gallery; La Jolla, La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art and Coral Gables, Lowe Art Museum. Paris, Centre George Pompidou, Hans Haacke, Artfairismes, 1989 (illustrated, pp. 46 and 47). Executed in 1982-1983, Reaganomics captures the mood in the United States at the very beginning of Ronald Reagan's presidency. Created by German artist Hans Haacke, the work offers an incisive commentary into the radical economic changes and structural reforms being undertaken by the neo-Conservative leader at the time. It also investigates the discourses of media, cultural and political power by forcing a reexamination of how images are encoded with meaning. The work was conceived as a sister piece to the artist's Homage à Marcel Broodthaers (1982), which entailed the installation of a small portrait of Reagan in a gilded frame behind a red velvet rope at Documenta 7. Reaganomics was created the following year and shortly after the President's son was pictured queuing for the dole in the New York Post on 14th October 1982. Ron Reagan Jr. was quoted as saying: 'I spoke with my mother before I signed on and she OK'd it' (R. Reagan Jr. quoted in I. Rogoff, 'Double Vision: Politics Between Image and Representation', German Art Now, London, 1989, p. 61). In Reaganomics, Haacke parallels the slick, glowing, colour portrait of Reagan with the affirmative language, 'Yes, my son collects unemployment, too! REAGANOMICS'. In doing so, he illuminates the populist and rhetorical effect of the President's words, using the same advertising tactics as those used in commercial practice. The irony lies in the inviting image and the implied camaraderie when the policies of Reaganomics were explicitly geared towards driving back the welfare state, privatisation, liberalisation and the breaking of entrenched labour unions.
