"Utopia and Reality: Modernity in Sweden 1900 - 1960"
2000-10-07 until 2001-01-14
Modern Museum
Stockholm, , SE

A new time, a new society, a new person needs new images, new buildings and new things. Moderna Museet’s major autumn exhibition, Utopia and Reality, is a broad survey of how modernism evolved in Sweden during a time marked by change and a strong belief in a better life for everyone. By gathering together art, architecture, photography, film and design, the exhibition illustrates the connections between different artistic expressions and society in general.

Connected with the exhibition is a pedagogic pool in which visitors are invited to catch their breath, leaf through books and catalogues and reflect on the exhibition. The contem-porary design group, Uglycute, composed of an interior designer, an architect and two artists, has created the pool.

In conjunction with the exhibition there will be a symposium on Saturday, 28th October, an educational programme, concerts and a film programme. Short films by Viking Eggeling, Gösta Werner, Rut Hillarp, Peter Weiss, Per Olov Grönstrand, Pontus Hultén and Hans Nordenström will be shown together will several of the great classics of Swedish feature films, such as Sjöströms Körkarlen and Bergmans Smultronstället. See the Home Page for dates and times.

Utopia and Reality is a collaboration between Moderna Museet, Arkitekturmuseet and the handicraft and design department of Nationalmuseum. The exhibition is supported financially by IKEA.
