 Hans Haacke

For the 'Prospect 69' exhibition in the Kunsthalle, Düsseldorf, Haacke drew up a concept he elucidated as follows: 'A telex machine installed in the Düsseldorf Kunsthalle prints all the news communicated by the German press agency DPA. The printouts will be put on display for further reading one day after being communicated, and on the third day the rolls of paper will be labelled and dated, then stored in plexiglass containers.'
