I co-curated this exhibition with Lucas Blalock, Ida Kierulf, Susanne Østby Sæther, and Nina Strand. It debuted in 2017 at the Malmö Konsthall and traveled to the Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo.
Subjektiv’s points of departure are the potential relations between art, politics, and subjectivity at a moment when the basis of democratic subjecthood is called into question. While there is a sense that the shared public space of politics is being overwhelmed by affective content, we are simultaneously witnessing a reinvigoration of the power of the collective and the resolve of community. The exhibition and accompanying journal issue explore questions of what subjektiv might mean in this context.
