Immerse yourself in our large, rich art collection based on the theme ”A Room of One’s Own”. The Author Virginia Woolf’s essay “A Room of One’s Own” (1921) is written by a woman for women – male readers are forced to read through a woman’s gaze. Reader’s reactions to the essay are found in notes written in the library’s copies of Woolf’s book which the artist Kajsa Dahlberg has photocopied. Together with works by Tyra Lundgren, Siri Derkert, Charlotte Johannesson among others, this thematic tour highlights the work of women artists which largely have been rejected by the male dominated art world.
