Label Text:
New York Collection for Stockholm is a portfolio of works by thirty artists published by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) to support the purchase of works by American artists of the 1960s for the permanent collection of the Moderna Museet, in Stockholm. E.A.T., which was in operation between 1966 and 1993, was a non-profit organization co-founded by American artist Robert Rauschenberg and Swedish engineer William Kl├╝ver with the aim of sponsoring collaborations between artists and scientists and promoting cultural exchange. The German conceptual artist Hans Haacke is particularly well known for works that expose the underpinnings and inner-workings of the art world, particularly issues of how sponsors and donors can affect what is shown and how works are presented and perceived in museums.

In this deceptively simple but effective work, Haacke has used a straightforward poll to make explicit the liberal bias of most people who work in the arts and many who patronize art galleries.
