In springtime every year, a jury selects the best Swedish picture book amongst last year's releases. This year, the prize goes to Eva Lindström's Kom hem Laila [Come home Laila], a warm and playful story about adventure and longing. The award winning picture book is showcased in an exhibition at Bildmuseet.
Innovative, provocative and brilliantly versatile, Carl Johan De Geer has worked as a visual artist, designer, filmmaker, photographer, scenographer and author. But Initially he wanted to be a textile designer. The exhibition is entirely devoted to De Geer's textile work and compiles a rich selection of fabrics, pattern sketches and documentary photographs.
The exhibition brings together an outstanding selection of artworks - film and video, drawing and sculpture, installation and sound art - which invite museum visitors to rethink the human position in the world, its relationship to animals and all other forms of life, and to the various complex ecologies that bond beings together.
