Four case studies bring to the fore decolonial and other non-hegemonic approaches to the profession of curating in Sweden from the 1960s to the early 2000s.Through four case studies, Archeology of a Profession in Sweden brings to the fore decolonial and other non-hegemonic approaches to the profession of curating in Sweden from the 1960s to the early 2000s. Carlos Capelán, Elisabet Haglund, Gunilla Lundahl, and Jan-Erik Lundström made their mark on art and curating of their time, at institutions such as Kulturhuset and Arkitekturmuseet in Stockholm, Borås Konstmuseum and Bildmuseet in Umeå, but also through exhibitions on trains and in parks. They pioneered what today is called “social practice” and embraced art and artists from all parts of the world. This book highlights their underresearched work in presentations, essays, and interviews, accompanied by rare photographic documentation.
