      1. Catalog accompanying the traveling exhibition Populism, curated by Lars Bang Larsen, Cristina Ricupero and Nicolaus Schafhausen, which was on view at CAC, Vilnius; National Museum of Art, Oslo; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Frankfurter Kunsverein, Frankfurt in the course of 2005. Exhibition considered populism as a ‘pervasive cultural phenomenon’ and sought to explore the current manifestations of populism, particularly in Europe. This focus also regarded questions of how certain populist demands for ‘access,’ ‘high visitor numbers,’ and ‘entertainment’ had found their way into the contemporary art field and its institutions themselves. Other themes included: ‘the mass media projection of politics; market populism and the cultural industries; group and corporate identities; representations and spaces of ‘the people’: law, order and security; religious and moral controversy; nationalism and xenophobia.’ The artist list stands as a snapshot of certain important (and in some cases trendy) artistic positions in the 2000s: Bernadette Corporation, Phil Collins, Minerva Cuevas, Jeremy Deller, Jens Haaning & Superflex, Henrik Plenge Jakobsen, Per Kirkeby, Erik van Lieshout, Cildo Meireles, Sarah Morris, Roman Ondak, Kirstine Roepstorff, Willem de Rooij, Julika Rudelius, Sean Snyder, Milica Tomic, Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas, Wang Du, etc.
