Zineb Sedira / Standing Here Wondering Which Way to Go

2021-06-19 to 2021-10-24

Zineb Sedira’s exhibition at Bildmuseet is about culture and resistance: time, place and identity. Focusing on Algeria’s capital Algiers which, during the 1960s, was a hub for freedom-fighting organisations, Sedira presents the Pan African Festival 1969 as an example of how work and culture contributed to a unique spirit of solidarity and mobilisation. Standing Here Wondering Which Way to Go features a replica of the artist’s living room, a diorama adorned with furniture, books and interior details. Photo montages, album covers, books and films all evoke this time and movement.

Zineb Sedira (b. 1963, France, based in the UK) will represent France at the Venice Biennale 2022. In 2010, her art was presented in a large solo exhibition at Bildmuseet.

Standing Here Wondering Which Way to Go was commissioned by Bildmuseet in collaboration with Jeu de Paume in Paris, France; IVAM in Valencia, Spain; and Gulbenkian in Lisbon, Portugal.

The exhibition is produced with support from the Institut français de Suède.
