TV Trampoline: From Children’s Television to Contemporary Art and Literature
Childrens’ television in Sweden between 1965 and 1985 forms a particular cultural heritage. During this period, children’s television was much like a melting pot of different cultural and political references. It gathered cultural expressions from the two sides of the iron curtain as well as from the non-aligned and neutral countries.
For the purpose of this exhibition, artists and writers have created new works inspired by childrens’ programs from this period, such as Gena the Crocodile (Soviet Union), Sesame Street (USA), Little Sandman (East Germany), Professor Balthazar (Yugoslavia), Fabeltjeskrant [The fables newspaper] (Netherlands), Havoc in Heaven (China), Once Upon a Time… Man (France), The Mole (Czechoslovakia), and Pippi Longstocking, Vilse i pannkakan [Lost in the pancake] and Tjejerna gör uppror [The Girls Revolt] from Sweden.
Participants: Petra Bauer, Ida Börjel & Lo Hillarp, Andjeas Ejiksson, Annika Eriksson, Jennifer Hayashida, Salad Hilowle, Balsam Karam, Behzad Khosravi Noori, Runo Lagomarsino, Katarina Pirak Sikku and Olivia Plender.
