RAHMAN HAK-HAGIR - INTERVIEW by STEFAN WOLNER for the OS -MAGAZINE (2013)
Rahman Hak-Hagir (born May 15, 1972) is an Austrian-born Vienna-based half-afghan conceptual and performance artist who began his career in 1990. Active for two decades in varied fields of art, his work is recently focussing on the conflicting priorities between individual and social environment.
"Performance artist Rahman Hak-Hagir donated The Detroit Dollar to MONA. The piece as well as documentary photographs and corresponding Manifesto are currently on display as part of the DOCUMENTA show at MONA's Armada space. Check out this short video which serves as a wonderful introduction to Rahman Hak-Hagir's artistic practice. Thanks Jarod George Bardon for the subtitles."
