Between Realities: Photography in Sweden 1970–2000

Between Realities: Photography in Sweden 1970–2000
GOTHENBURG  •  Gothenburg Museum of Art and Hasselblad Center  •  Ongoing

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.
