En känsla av samhörighet – Repeterar cirkeln på Arbetets museum, Norrköping, October-November 2009.

With Nina Svensson.

At the Museum of Work we looked closely at the museums ideological background as part of the workers movement and its representation of modes of culture production.

As a field study, and as an expansion for the intervention with museum, we collaborated with an animal caretaker at Kolmården Zoo, to generate a discussion of expressions in visual arts, imaginable for the development of a contemporary artistic dialog at the Museum of Work and its believes in arts function in mediating work life.

We also produced a radio drama in cooperation with dramatist Dennis Magnusson. The work highlights the motifs and visual expressions of art that have become part of the canon and have assumed institutional status within the imagery of the workers’ movement. The work also consists of a series of photographs, for which we had searched out the places – stairwells, corporate dining rooms and offices – where this now emblematic works’ art now hangs.
