The committee has selected 49 artists aged between 28 and 99 who complement each other in their interpretations and translations of the increasing pressure from the outside world. The exhibition explores the relationship to the concept of reality, sampling and how art extends into the public domain.
With that object in view, the museum will organise public debates on Swedish contemporary art, special guided tours and a discussion series with some of the exhibited artists and people working in the fields of theatre, literature, film and music (see attached programme). In order to give more depth to the exhibition and also make it more accessible, a 348-page catalogue, with essays, artist biographies and illustrations, is included in the admission fee (SEK 60/80).
