MIKAEL OLSSON
FORTHCOMING BOOK



In on | auf the Swedish artist Mikael Olsson undertakes a photographic interpretation of the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron’s and the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s temporary pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in London.

By investigating the traces of their creative processes in their archives, and exploring the relation between their pavilion and its shifting contexts, Olsson creates images that follow and go beyond the object – visual narratives uncovering issues of memory, identity and perception.

The book includes an essay by author Péter Nádas entitled ’Loaned Landscapes, Borrowed Objects. The Real Space of the Image and the Representation of Space in Mikael Olsson’s Photography.’ ; "The images of Mikael Olsson are held by the tension between visual faculties and visual conventions, the reality of perception and the reality of vision, of the concrete and the abstract."

Péter Nádas

RELEASE OF PUBLICATION: MATTER OF CONCERN HANS HEDBERG READER.





In Memory of Hans Hedberg who passed away last year.

As a photographer, critic, curator and educator at Konstfack, Hans Hedberg played a decisive role in the establishing of photography as an artistic practice in the 1990s. During his time at the School of Photography, prefect of Valand and Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Gothenburg, Hans Hedberg had a great significance for the emergence of artistic research in Sweden in the beginning of the 21st century. To commemorate the memory of Hans Hedberg, Konstfack and Valand Academy will host a symposium focusing on the important tendencies in contemporary art - entirely in the spirit of Hedberg. Practitioners from various photographic fields have been invited by professionals who met Hans Hedberg during different stages of his life. They will give their view on the current state of the medium and challenges for the future.

His review of my exhibition at Nordenhake Stockholm was first published in Svenska Dagbladet, 2000.
Now reprinted in the Matter of Concern Hans Hedberg Reader .

Editors: Svante Larsson & Niclas Östlind.
Design: Studio Moss.
