See the results of the project “Futures: Light, Heart, Hope”!

From 21 April, Moderna Museet will be showing the results of the Youth Council’s open call for creative people between 16 and 23 in the museum foyer. See paintings, poetry, photographs and video art on the theme of Visions for a Sustainable World.

If we can’t imagine a sustainable future, it will be even harder to get there. That was the starting point when Moderna Museet’s Youth Council issued its open call for the project “Futures: Light, Heart, Hope” (“Framtider: Ljus, hjärta, hopp”). Eleven young people were selected for participation, and the results will be featured in an exhibition in the Moderna Museet foyer, opening on Friday, 21 April, the UN World Creativity and Innovation Day.

“The young artists I’ve met during these weeks will contribute to the literature art and culture of the future. A future where all people can make their voices heard, and where artists will have their own spaces where anything is possible,” says Ester Magnusson, one of the participants.

Inspired by the Moderna Museet collection, a workshop on the future organised by Planethon, and guided by the artist Emma Dominguez, who was the project mentor, the participants have created works on the theme of Visions for a Sustainable Future.

“It was super-inspiring to mentor these young artists through the project. They all brought well-thought out and powerful works, and I’m so looking forward to seeing the final exhibition,” says Emma Dominguez.

The exhibition is on until Sunday, 7 May 2023.

In collaboration with Planethon and Heart 17.
