When photographer Ulrika Walmark was given the opportunity to photograph Donald Trump, it was his secretary who fascinated her the most. This gave her the idea for the project now at Färgfabriken. Walmark then traveled the world in order to capture the secretaries of the stars instead of the stars themselves. An exhibition that portrays the complex system behind the creation of today's icons.
It’s finally time for the large Spring exhibition at Tensta Konsthall. For the first time in the Nordic region, the American-Austrian artist, Rainer Ganahl, presents his work in the exhibition DADALENIN. The exhibition drives the thesis that Lenin was one of the founders of the Dada movement. A little crazy and very exciting.
In their combined project, Ocean of Dreams, Charlotte Åberg and Lott Alfreds have managed to illustrate people's dreams in a collective video work. It is now on display at Candyland.
Trunk - The Nordic Art Video Festival began in 2003 and has now developed into an art video forum to count on. In this year's festival, some twenty video pieces from 12 different countries will be shown. Among them is the film by Iranian artist Shahram Entekhabis who comments on today's fears and prejudices about Muslim men.The French-Chinese artist Zhenchen Liu takes part with Under Construction, a flim about the exploitation of the Shanghai population. Now at Färgfabriken.
Photographer Vincent Skoglund has returned to Sweden from his foreign adventures. Back on home ground he has worked on the project Lightyears and the whole project is now on display for the first time at Galleri Jonas Kleerup.
