Autumn is the perfect time of year to get inspired at different museums in Stockholm. Here’s a few exhibitions that strike extra special and fun to us.
What really happened last night in Sweden?
In February 2017, the president of United States, Donald Trump, argued about what happened last night in Sweden. Fact is, nothing really had happened. This is the core of the exhibition Last Night in Sweden, put together by some of the most acclaimed photographers in Sweden. They have been documenting the everyday life in Sweden, everything from political, social and cultural nuances will be brought presented. The exhibition is open from 13 September — 29 October.
Norm Form at ArkDes
From 6 October – 11 February you can explore norms and conceptions at ArkDes (Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design), located in the same premisses as the Modern Museum. Norm Form is an exhibition that challenges what’s considered normal. It confronts norms, and shows how things could be the other way around, and at the same time question why for example ladies- and mens bikes look differently.
The Autumn Salon at Fotografiska
Another exhibition at Fotografiska is the recurring autumn salon, open from 6 October – 3 December. The autumn salon is the largest juried exhibition in Swedish photography. A jury have selected 31 photographers out of 1678 photographs. The autumn salon gives amateurs as well as established photographers to reach a wider audience.
Lee Miller – War and Fashion
At Kulturhuset (Stockholm Culture House) you can explore the exhibition of Lee Miller’s photographies. Lee Miller was an extraordinary women. She died at age 70 at 1977, after working as a war correspondent and photographic witness from the nazis concentration camp and other big events. She also worked as a model and fashion photographer. When she died, her son Antony find a big collection of photos that Lee Miller hadn’t showed anyone. Thus, many of the photos in the exhibition have never been viewed publicly before.
