The Society Machine
‘The Society Machine’ problematises the picture of modern Sweden as an unmitigated success story. This exhibition catalogue features artworks that explore the consequences of industrialisation, the cultural revolution that provided the foundation for this Scandinavian welfare state. It asks what kind of society is created by standardisation and all-encompassing efficiency. How are man and nature altered by being viewed primarily as components of an economic system? Bringing together new essays with documentation of the exhibition at Malmö Konstmuseum curated by Lisa Rosendahl, the book features work by a diverse spectrum of Swedish and international artists.
