12 Sep - 25 Nov 2007
Group exhibition and book that gathers 20 artists and fiction writers who work with history, storytelling and time. The exhibition deals with the current fascination for recreating the past in contemporary art and literature. Today visual artists and writers move easily between image and text. This has been used as a working method creating a transgression between the two cultural fields in the format of an exhibition. The participants touch upon how we experience time, how we create stories and what function the reconstruction of the past fills in contemporary culture.
The book Anachronisms is produced in collaboration with Albert Bonniers Förlag.
