Raum #26 – Retrofleksive

March 3 – April 23, 2006

In the works of the Danish artist Lone Haugaard Madsen, discussion events and texts as forms of theoretical engagement with art occupy as large a place as concrete works, her photography, objects, and drawings themselves. The fundamental questions she addresses concern the conditions of making and exhibiting art: Which contexts constitute an artwork? What makes an institution? What is the relation of a catalogue to its exhibition, to the institutional space, to the artist’s intentions, and to the expectations of the public?


Lone Haugaard Madsen, born in Silkeborg, Denmark, in 1974, lives and works in Copenhagen and Vienna.
