In The World around You: Contemporary Art from the Collection, Gothenburg Museum of Art presents an exhibition in which the art of the 1970s meets the art of our time. It comprises around forty works that relate to their time in different ways – embracing or criticizing it, challenging it and making its presence known, or by turning away from it. In one way or another, art always reflects the time and society it was created in. It can help us understand both the past and the surrounding world.

The exhibition is curated by Trine Stephensen / Plantation Journal.
Sculptural Landscapes presents the work of a range of Scandinavian artists with a common interest in the sculptural and abstract qualities of photography. In their work, each of the featured artists approaches the landscape as a phenomenon, encompassing both manmade and natural forms as well as internal and external landscapes.
In an exhibition where the landscape is both a universal fact and a personal affair, the spectrum of visual approaches is equally as varied. Here, images created directly with the camera sit alongside those that are distorted, sampled, twisted and faded beyond it. The featured artists refuse to be confined to the photographic frame, challenging instead the surface of the image and expanding into spatial installations.
Founded by Trine Stephensen, The Plantation Studio is an art initiative and project space showcasing explorations within contemporary curatorial and photographic fields. They curate various exhibitions, publications and events.
Johan Österholm is part of the group show Back to the Future. The 19th Century in the 21st Century
The Mai Manó House presents the exhibition which focuses on the work of contemporary artists who employ techniques, methods, processes and themes that in one way or another resemble those of early nineteenth-century photographers. As well as being inspired by the pioneering years of photography, they build upon them in surprising ways.

“What Paradise?” brings together internationally renowned, frequently discussed positions including Kader Attia, Thomas Hirschhorn and Santiago Sierra, but also still-to-be-discovered artists from a younger generation such as Viktoria Binschtok or the Iranian Arash Hanaei, who is represented with his shocking textual work “Death of a Photographer.” In addition to what are in some cases large-format photographic works, sculptures and videos, a painting and several drawings, visitors will also have the chance to experience a space-encompassing, kinetic installation by the American artist Jon Kessler.
The exhibition offers a pointed, sharply contoured selection of highly political, sometimes explosive works that address the social dislocations of our era in a critical, often oppressive manner.
Weserburg Museum für Moderne Kunst Bremen, DE, until February 10, 2019
