The artist spoke to Lauren O’Neill-Butler for Artforum.com, and the survey was reviewed by Alice Pfeiffer (Art in America). Afterall 18 (summer 2008) included Belinda Bowring, “Sturtevant: On Art and Its Time,” and a conversation with Hainley. The artist published “Inherent Vice or Vice Versa” in Tate Papers (autumn 2007).
“The Brutal Truth” was at the MMK Frankfurt and the List Visual Arts Center in 2004 and 2005. Robert Rosenblum and Michael Lobel spoke. The show came with a two-volume publication, consisting of the exhibition catalog and a catalogue raisonné (Hatje Cantz; Worldcat).
In Artforum, see Hainley, “Notes on renewed appropriationisms: the project,” (May 2004), and “’80s Then: Sturtevant talks to Bruce Hainley,” (March 2003). Hatje Cantz published Shifting Mental Structures (2002), with text by Bernard Blistène, Hainley, and Alexander Tolnay, and “Against Einordnung,” a conversation, was in Texte zur Kunst 46: “Appropriation” (June 2002). In Frieze, there is Hainley, “Erase and Rewind” (June-August 2000). Stefan Römer’s Berlin dissertation, “Der Begriff des Fake” (1998), also discussed the artist.
