It will be a kaleidoscopic blend of popular culture and fine culture which alternates between global perspectives and Swedish micro perspectives. It may for example feature the political resistance movement posters in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, mobile phone design, Jeff Koon’s postmodernism and latterday modernism by Jasper Morrison, music videos by Madonna and Roxette, the emergence of video games, the fashion of large shoulder pads and pastel colours. The exhibition reflects on the shift between the 1980’s and 1990’s as an historical breaking point and the concept of the exhibition theme revolves around terms such as freedom, liberation and the disintegration of borders.
