The History Book
When an institution such as Moderna Museet celebrates its 50th anniversary, this prompts retrospection and an analysis of is history, as a starting-point for discussing the Museum’s future development. In October 2008, The History Book. On Moderna Museet 1958-2008 was published, as a result of a major research project. The book presents 12 new texts on a number of subjects that have been central to the Museum’s activities. It is also amply illustrated and contains information about exhibitions and events, along with a bibliography.
Editor: Anna Tellgren Moderna Museet
Co-produced by Moderna Museet and Steidl Verlag.
The authors of The History Book are:
Eva Eriksson, Annika Gunnarsson, Martin Gustavsson, Maria Görts, Anette Göthlund, Hans Hayden, Marianne Hultman, Karin Malmquist, Magnus af Petersens, Martin Sundberg, Anna Tellgren, Jeff Werner. The artists Marysia Lewandowska and Neil Cummings were invited to contribute an artistic intervention to the book.
