Pride City, Fri 4 Aug 11:00 AM–11:45 AM
Come along on a guided tour during Stockholm Pride 2023! On two occasions, a guided tour is held in the collection exhibition “Sleepless Nights” or “Pink Sails” focusing on identity, gaze and queer lives. Cultural Scholar Emil Åkerö talks about artists such as Nils Dardel, Robert Mapplethorpe and Tuija Lindström.
On Thursday 3 August at 11.00, we see how key events of the 1980s are represented artistically in photography, sculpture, painting and film in the exhibition “Sleepless Nights – From the 1980s in Moderna Museet’s collection”. This includes the fall of the Berlin Wall and the launching of the Internet. The AIDS crisis became very palpable in art and culture contexts, and many artists were strongly affected by both the disease and the homophobia that followed. Using artworks by artists such as Matts Leiderstam, Tuija Lindström, David Wojnarowicz and Robert Mapplethorpe, Emil Åkerö shows how the artists portrayed same-sex desire and the theme of HIV.
On Friday 4 August at 11.00, Emil Åkerö guides us thorugh the exhibition “Pink Sails – Swedish Modernism in Moderna Museet’s collection”, which highlights some of the stories which have characterized Swedish Modernism. With works from the early 20th century until the 1940s the artists reflect how artists were affected by social changes and influences from major European cities. Using Rolf de Maré as a starting point, Emil Åkerö shows how artists like Ivar Lönnberg and Nils Dardel related to and expressed their desires in a time of low tolerance for a life outside the norm.
