Between Realities: Photography in Sweden 1970–2000
GOTHENBURG  •  Gothenburg Museum of Art and Hasselblad Center  •  8 February - 11 May 2014

The exhibition features works by more than 50 photographers from different generations. The project surveys and analyses various leading photographic practices and styles. 1970s photography was strongly influenced by documentary ambitions. In the 1980s, more subjective and artistic approaches came to the fore, and in the 1990s, photography enjoyed a prominent position in postmodern contemporary art. The purpose of Between Realities is also to look beyond the division into decades, to show how different tendencies impact on each other and stretch over longer time periods. In order to achieve a complex historical picture, the exhibition also highlights the anomalies and continuities in the photographic field, and the boundaries between different realities.

While Between Realities is on view in Gothenburg, the exhibition The Visible. Contemporary Swedish Photography will also be show at Artipelag in Stockholm.

Dance Machines: From Léger to Kraftwerk
STOCKHOLM  •  Moderna Museet  •  22 January - 27 April 2014
In the first decades of the 20th century, industrialised, mechanised society made inroads into art and everyday life. The Italian futurists proclaimed a new era, with the industrial sector and its machines as an aesthetic ideal. In a time of mass production and assembly lines, artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia and Gösta Adrian-Nilsson portrayed bodies reduced to mechanical objects. In Paris, the Mecca of the European avant-garde, the artists Fernand Léger and Sonia Delaunay-Terk, and the poets Blaise Cendrars and Guillaume Apollinaire were among the first to use modernity – and the modern city – as their subject matter. Film, choreography and dance became essential to portraying movement, energy and dynamism in the new era. The exhibition presents some 50 works from Moderna Museet’s collection, along with works on loan from other institutions, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris and Dansmuseet in Stockholm.

The multimedia project KRAFTWERK was founded in 1970 by Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider within the experimental art scene of the late Sixties in Dusseldorf. They set up their legendary electronic Kling Klang Studio where they composed and produced all the groundbreaking Kraftwerk albums.Numerous live performances took place during that time in museums and galleries of the surrounding Rhineland.

Kraftwerk are considered to be pioneers in electronic music and an endless source of inspiration for a wide range of musical genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop.
