The exhibition “A wounded dream”, which was presented at Moderna Museet Malmö between 6 December, 2014 – 11 January, 2015, will be shown at Malmö Stadsbibliotek. The exhibition aims through films, sculpture, painting, and poetry to create cracks in established institutions, and to create a space for more than one truth.
A wounded dream is about the pursuit of freedom and equality, about power, migration and racism and how all the events in the world are interconnected. It is about visible and invisible borders, absence and hope that become like wounds on our dreams. But it is also about the strength within those dreams and the possibility of change. A wounded dream also refers to the truths that have a space within established institutions and the public space, and which voices that are heard and which are questioned.
This exhibition is a part of the project S.A.Y. (Stories, Art, You) which started during the fall of 2013. S.A.Y. is founded upon participation and giving everyone the chance to be heard.
Opening: 17 August at 5 pm at Stadsbiblioteket Malmö
Address: Kung Oscars väg 11
The exhibition continues until the 30 of August 2015.
