[ale_toggle title=”Roger Ballen’s Theater of the Absurd’ at Fotografiska” state=”open”]

roger-ballen-fotografiskaThe New York-born (born 1950) photographer Roger Ballen’s trademark is his ability to capture humans but also animals in an illogical, almost surreal reality – simply in a theatre of the absurd. The 105 photographs exhibited at Fotografiska are stretching over the entire career of the artist, from 1970 until the recent past.

[ale_toggle title=”Julia Fullerton-Batten ‘Staged Reality’ at Fotografiska ” state=”open”]

Julia-Fullerton-Batten-FotografiskaThe most characteristic idea around Julia Fullerton-Batten’s photography (born 1970 in Bremen to an English father and German mother) is a teenager’s journey into adulthood, especially the relationship between mother and daughter during these crucial years.

[ale_toggle title=”‘Dance Machines – From Léger to Kraftwerk’ at Moderna Museet Stockholm” state=”open”]

This exhibition is focusing entirely on the human fascination with machines, industry and everyday mechanisation. One of the museum’s galleries is devoted entirely to Kraftwerk’s 3-D installation from 2013, entitled ‘1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8‘.

In the early 20th century, art began to take part in the industrial development and the first attempts were made to portray the new experiences that came with life in the city. Around this time, on 20 February, 1909, the first Futurist Manifesto was published in the French daily paper Le Figaro.

This exhibition takes the visitor on a journey from those days via Charlie Chaplin’s “Modern Times” to our world today, rounding it all off with the legendary German Kraftwerk’s 3-D installation.

[ale_toggle title=”‘Gabriel Orozco – Natural Motion’ at Moderna Museet Stockholm” state=”open”]

Orozco_ModernaThe Mexican Gabriel Orozco (born 1962) nowadays lives in between Paris, New York and Mexico City and he is one of the most widely recognised artists of his generation. Despite his international fame, this will be his first ever exhibition in Scandinavia.

The artist’s life life has been characterised by a nomadic existence and much of his work is influenced by his observation of the everyday streetlife. Orozco once said: “What is most important is not so much what people see in the gallery or the museum, but what people see after looking at these things, how they confront reality again”. Thus, be prepared to come out from this exhibition by looking at your surroundings differently.

‘Natural Motion’ is an exhibition by Moderna Museet in Stockholm in cooperation with the Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria.
