Welcome to the preview for “Monica Sjöö: The Great Cosmic Mother”. This is the first retrospective museum exhibition of the artist, activist, author and eco-feminist Monica Sjöö.

In all her work Monica Sjöö (1938-2005) waged an uncompromising battle for freedom from all forms of oppression. The retrospective “The Great Cosmic Mother” brings together for the first time Sjöö’s extensive body of work where art, politics and spirituality have become inseparable.

The exhibition departs from Sjöö’s entire practice and contains around fifty works – from large-scale paintings to political posters, banners, drawings and material from the artist’s extensive archive.
