Curator guided tour during Forbidden Culture Week

Illegal Spirits of Sápmi

23.11 2023


Welcome to join a guided tour of the exhibition “Anders Sunna – Illegal Spirits of Sápmi”, led by curator Joa Ljungberg. The tour is a part of Forbidden Culture Week.

Welcome to participate when curator Joa Ljungberg, guides in a tour of the exhibition “Anders Sunna – Illegal Spirits of Sápmi”. For the first time since its acclaimed premier showing at the 2022 Venice Biennale, this work will now be on view at Moderna Museet Malmö.

The artwork measures approximately twenty meters, and the narrative is chronicled in six chapters that span from the 1970s to the present, with one large painting per decade. Anders Sunna portrays his family’s half-century-long conflict with the Swedish state. The disputes that have shaped the lives of three generations of the Sunna family originate in the 1971 Reindeer Husbandry Act and how it came to be interpreted. The artwork is included in the Moderna Museet Collection.
