"Fredrik Svensk see three exhibitions with a coherent theme"
"At Göteborgs konsthall is now displayed the exhibition Before we Forget with works by Petra Hultman, Helga Härenstam, Katerina Šedá, Knutte Wester and Ferhat Özgür. Here, the focus is on the artists ' relationship to an earlier generation in his own family. While Petra Hultmans work Work at home work, Work in wood and Work in the textile (2017) focuses on the creation of the Swedish housewife, and attempts to improve the efficiency of household work in relation to their own grandparents, so treat Ferhat Özgür in Metamorphosis chat (2009) his muslim conservative mother's visitation with his secular friend."
"on the basis of familjealbumets conventions dealing with Helga Härenstams installation In anticipation of what is to come farmoderns growing up years on -Mnene mission in the british colony of Rhodesia. The result is a rich and well-installed exhibition which, by virtue of their different ways to convey the memory calls for reflection on how the personal mind always seems to sammantvinnat with the political conflicts linked to colonialism, class society and modernity's attempt to add life to the right."
"the Exhibition Memory matters at Skissernas museum in Lund has, in contrast to the Before we forget in Gothenburg a more explicit political input to memory problems. This is the starting point for the right-wing uprising in Charlottesville in August 2017, where the city's decision to remove the sydstatsmonumentet of the governor and rasisten Robert E Lee, inter alia, led to the neo-nazi James Fields murdered antirasisten Heather Heyer. "
"the Work is a textbook case of critical memory work, whose logic will return in the Jeannette Ehlers & La Vaughn Belle I am the Queen Mary, a monument to the memory of the trauma as Denmark's colonization of the current US Virgin Islands meant: a public works in Copenhagen, denmark, who presented in the exhibition activities."
"the Majority of the artists in the exhibition belong to a younger generation, but this is also one of the minneskonstnärer who were the first to work with the archive as an artistic form, namely, Luis Camnitzer. He helps with the work of the Memorial from 2009. A reconstruction of montevideo's phone book where the 300 name which disappeared during the dictatorship 1973-1985 lack of addresses. As well as the exhibition in its entirety, is portrayed here as a political trauma, at the same time tightly reasonable in a casual material, whose effect will be an abysmal tragedy. "
"the Memory also has a central function in the Lund konsthall is a retrospective exhibition of History in the stitches with Britta Marakatt-Labba. In addition to the one, unfortunately badly carried out, the copy of her monumental embroidery History (2003-2007), the display shows a large amount of work which allows the textile to function as both an artistic and historical document."
"At the center is not only the sami history in the strict sense, but its integrative function in a nation-state. A memory which is perhaps best illustrated in the embroidered fönsterkuvertet from Radiotjänst in Kiruna, sweden, from 1990. It is works like these that make Marakatt-cannot be predicted within reason overall artistry is so intricate and important."
"In a characteristic style, she works both with subtle critical commentary on the dominant state apparatus, and at the same time, with a visual and tactile narrative that oscillates between the seemingly general images of, for example, a fiskeliv and a konferenssituation, and with references to a sami cosmology that makes a colonial scientific historiebegrepp to something alien."
"What, then, these three exhibitions common other than the theme?"
"They use the art space and the modern concept of art to write into the memory of something in the story in much the same way. In short, by in regular order to place works of art seamlessly side-by-side, for the viewer in peace and quiet, look for similarities and differences within the secure walls."
"This highlights how all works of art despite their different forms, unlike konstinstitutionerna, acts as a sort of documents of both civilization and befrielsekamp on the one hand, and barbarism, neglected and control on the other. If we assume that the concept of art and its institutions also are sprung from the same paradox, so I can't help but yearn for a show that is able to deal with this, also in its form."
