REVIEW FOTOGRAFISK TIDSKRIFT BY MAGNUS BONS



Intense, dry and twisted passion.

Maybe described Olsson's chain of alternating black and white and color images best as a philosophical suggestions of what photography can be. A reflection on what takes place in the movement between the photographer, the camera and the subject. Three parts that form a unit.

REVIEW SVD BY MAGNUS AF PETERSENS



Architecture photography that bordering on the abstract

"The photographs move in the borderland between representation and abstraction, condensed, conceptually and visually pregnant. They form autonomous rooms, to speak with Nádas.”

LESSONS OF THE HOUR, ON VIEW AT MCEVOY FOUNDATION



Lessons of the Hour by Isaac Julien on view at McEvoy Foundation.

A non-linear presentation projected across 10 screens, Lessons of the Hour imagines Douglass as he traveled across the United Kingdom, lecturing in England, Scotland and Ireland for 19 months beginning in 1845. Douglass fled the United States that year for fear of being captured and re-enslaved after publishing Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, the first of three biographies he would write. While in Europe, Douglass enjoyed both wide public acclaim for his contributions to anti-slavery efforts, and movement free of harassment or abuse for his race.

Mikael Olsson stars in Lessons of the Hour.

PARTICIPIANT EXHIBITION VENICE



Mikael Olsson participate in the exhibition in 'Mutadis Mutandis – 24 pavilions'.

As an impromptu response to the cancellation of the Venice architecture biennial and the subsequent postponement of the upcoming art biennial, 'Mutadis Mutandis' showcases 24 proposals for future/imaginary pavilions free of any geopolitical, economic, physical, durational, or cosmic limitations.

Studio Giardini is – very suitably – situated in close proximity to the Giardini della Biennale in a residential neighborhood directly behind the oldest foreign pavilion inaugurated in 1907.

Curated by Love Enqvist and Lotte Møller
