Haegue Yang

Fine Arts, Vice-Rector

Haegue Yang lives and works in Berlin and Seoul and has been a Professor of Fine Arts at the Städelschule since 2017. She is interested in how the formal and conceptual, as well as the narrative language in art, form an irresistible paradox in contemplating on and reflecting the conflicts and circumstances of our time. Yang’s recent work considers the ever-developing and overwhelming possibility of communications technology and questions the status of human beings and the nature of civilization, articulated through her language of mute abstraction, which  is nothing but a lingering voice, murmuring an “absence of identity.” Recipient of the 2018 Wolfgang Hahn Prize, she held a survey exhibition at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne in the same year. Further solo exhibitions have been held at institutions worldwide including the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, Manila (2020), Tate St Ives (2020), Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2020), National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (2020); MO.CO. Panacée, Montpellier (2018); La Triennale di Milano (2018), and Centre Pompidou, Paris (2016). Yang’s work has been displayed in major international exhibitions including the 16th Istanbul Biennial (2019), the Liverpool Biennial (2018); the 21st Biennale of Sydney (2018); Sharjah Biennial 12 in the United Arab Emirates (2015); dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel (2012), and the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009). Her work is included in permanent collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; M+, Hong Kong; National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea; Tate, London; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
