The most influential artist is Hans Haacke

The German artist Hans Haacke is leading the magazine's "monopoly" determined the list of the most important personalities in the art world. In the grounds it means: "Since the beginning of his career, Hans Haacke understands art as a political space. His activism was always accurate, instead according to his society, art is more relevant today than ever."

The art magazine with the selection of important artists, curators, collectors and gallery owners in its December issue, a summary of the end of the year. To an activist, whose Protest had led to the patronage of the family Sackler is in demand as a funder in the art of the photographer Nan Goldin. Also, for political reasons, the front rank for the French art historian Bénédicte Savoy and the Senegalese Economists Felwine Sarr, whose report was a Wake-up call for the Restitution of colonial Raubguts "the European Museum landscape," as it is called (place 15) is motivated.

That the list in terms of the numbers just so well-balanced between men and women's names, not because artists are on the inside, as Hito Steyerl (10) and Henrike Naumann (11) on the front seats. And because Museum Directors such as Susanne Pfeffer (4) from the Museum of Modern art in Frankfurt, and Maria Balshaw (6) of the London Tate, the offensive in front of Max Hollein, from the Metropolitan Museum, or Glenn D. Lowry from the Museum of Modern Art in New York have been set.

One answer is touching: Even if it is actually a list of the Living, was held in March deceased curator, and Poet Okwui Enwezor, the last Director of the Munich house of art, the third space, write the editors Elke Buhr and Sebastian Frenzel. He was "of his time, always advance", please justify the exception. "His great theme, the end of the Eurocentric gaze, will be with us for a long time, his intellectual brilliance, remains a constant Inspiration."

Best Swiss: The gallery owners-a married couple Wirth

the Swiss artist to a rather marginal role to play in the Ranking. On the front seats, a Swiss gallery owner-couple have done it but, a curator, an art fair Director and an art collector. 16 Iwan and Manuela Wirth with her on three continents-present gallery Empire that you will develop to be a very mixed group (as "monopoly" are). 22 the Director of London's Serpentine Gallery, Hans Ulrich Obrist is recognized as a groundbreaking exhibition makers. Marc Spiegler, the Director for the 2012 Art Basel, follows on place 28. To space 36, it has managed the Roche-Miterbin Maja Hoffmann, has built with her Luma Foundation in Arles new art Mecca.

First place in 78, we take a Swiss artist. It's the girl from Basel, Switzerland Miriam Cahn, which was issued last year at the Kunstmuseum Bern, the Kunsthaus Bregenz, in the Reina Sofía in Madrid, and Haus der Kunst in Munich. Place 100 finally, there is a Basel: Christoph Büchel, produced for the Venice Biennale this year, the most controversial work. It was the wreck of a ship, which sank with 1000 Refugees in the Mediterranean sea. "Monopoly" praises: "He has created a work of art, the not and also to not withstand it."
