Manipulate the Word - Connecting Öyvind Fahlström
Group exhibition at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm
21. 10. 2017 – 21. 1. 2018
Curators: Fredrik Liew with Goldin+Senneby
In a text from 1964, Öyvind Fahlström urges to manipulate the world. What does this mean for artists today, in our era of alternative facts, relative truths and fragmented narratives?
In an exhibition filling two floors in the Museum, 28 Swedish and international artists explore and challenge Öyvind Fahlström’s ideas on manipulation and theatricality. Four historic works by Fahlström define the playing field for the exhibition, which takes place in three zones: the main exhibition hall on Floor 4, the spaces connecting both floors, and the exhibition halls on the lower ground floor.
