Poetry walks in the exhibition Manipulate the World – Connecting Öyvind Fahlström
For the fifth consecutive year, Stockholm Literature will feature Poetry Walks. Actors from the Royal Dramatic Theatre take the audience on a tour of the artworks in this autumn’s major group exhibition, Manipulate the World – Connecting Öyvind Fahlström. Participating actors: Erik Ehn, Nina Fex, Gunnel Fred, Magnus Roosmann, Kristina Törnqvist and Reuben Sallmander. The poetry programme is compiled by Reuben Sallmander.
Is the world a game board?
The driving force in Öyvind Fahlström’s art was the desire to discover how reality and meaning are produced. His practice explored financial, political and social connections. Manipulation and theatricality were key concepts in his artistic oeuvre. What does this signify today? This is investigated in a major group exhibition. Four historical works by Fahlström form the playing field for the exhibition, where 27 contemporary artists explore and challenge his ideas. And what happens when these works meet poetry?
In association with the Royal Dramatic Theatre Ord&Ton and Dramaten&.
