About this exposition

en
jag vet hur folkhemmet luktar is an interdisciplinary project that attempts to show a more complex picture of the Swedish folkhem (“people’s home” – a term used to describe the vision of a better life for all by Swedish social democracy). The project is a response to the romanticised and idealised image of the folkhem which, in the current political climate, is mainly propagated by the far right with the populist and racist Swedish Democrats (SD) at the forefront. Using the artists own “folkhem-marinated” body as a point of departure, the exposition sketches the nodes from which the folkhem unfolded and how that created the preconditions for certain people to feel at home while others were excluded. In mapping the “folkhem nodes” photographic documentation, notes of childhood memories and a conversation with the father is used. The project investigates how the folkhem ideology was implemented through a linguistic as well as a spatial and material aesthetics. The textual memories are contextualized through a system of footnotes, that in the exposition are shown in pop-up windows and act as a commenting and associative parallel text to the memory narratives.

jag vet hur folkhemmet luktar är ett interdisciplinärt projekt som visar på en mer komplex bild av det svenska folkhemmet än den idealisering av folkhemmet som i samtidens politiska klimat drivs av framförallt extremhögern med det populistiska och rasistiska Sverigedemokraterna (SD) i spetsen. Med utgångspunkten i konstnärens egen ”folkhemsmarinerade” kropp skisseras i expositionen noderna varifrån folkhemmet vecklade ut sig och hur de skapade förutsättningar för vissa att känna sig hemma medan andra uteslöts. I kartläggningen används fotografisk dokumentation, framskrivna minnesbilder från barndomen och ett samtal med fadern. Projektet undersöker hur folkhemideologin implementerades genom såväl en språklig som en rumslig och materiell estetik. De textuella minnesbilderna kontextualiseras genom en fotnotsapparatur som i expositionen visas i pop-up fönster och fungerar som en kommenterande och associerande parallelltext till minnesberättelserna.
