Framing Bodies

May 30–August 30

Framing Bodies addresses the disciplining, normative and identifying power of the photographic medium. The exhibited works from the Hasselblad Foundation collection relate to the photographic framing of various and often marginalised bodies. They evoke themes such as surveillance and control but also care and community. The selected works span from the turn of the 20th century until today. Among the older works are photographs by Marie Høeg and Bolette Berg, Walker Evans, Christer Strömholm, alongside contemporary works by Nan Goldin, Annica Karlsson Rixon, Adriana Lestido and Ann-Sofi Sidén, to name a few.
