Encounters – Nordic Photography Beyond Borders

Encounters – Nordic Photography Beyond Borders

23 February–5 May, 2019

 

The exhibition includes photography and video works by five Nordic contemporary artists; Nanna Debois Buhl (b 1975, based in Denmark), Bára Kristinsdottir (b 1960, based in Iceland), Sandra Mujinga (b 1989, based in Norway), Johannes Samuelsson (b 1982, based in Sweden) and Miia Autio (b 1986, based in Finland). Each of them is exploring means of visualizing social engagement and narrating new encounters; cultural, environmental or political. The works address current issues such as South-North migration, changes in land- and cityscapes as well as the local effects of economic globalisation.

 

The project is a collaboration between five Nordic curators and institutions; Jóhanna Gudrún Árnadóttir, Reykjavík Museum of Photography, Reykjavík, Iceland; Kristine Kern, Fotografisk Center, Köpenhamn, Denmark; Tiina Rauhala, Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki, Finland; Susanne Saether, Henie Onstad Art Center, Oslo, Norway, and Louise Wolthers and Dragana Vujanović Östlind, Hasselblad Foundation, Gothenburg, Sweden.

 

After being shown at the Hasselblad Center, the exhibition will tour the Nordic Countries, starting with Fotografisk Center, Copenhagen in the summer of 2019, and Reykjavik Museum of Photography, Reykjavik in the autumn of 2019.
