The Surrounding Reality

From the 1970s, Björn Lövin engaged persistently in an exploration of the changing society, revealing the gap between the welfare state, consumerism and the groups excluded.

Björn Lövin’s (1937–2009) immersive installations or environments, constructed out of carefully chosen details that together formed fictive worlds in which visitors could move around, made him one of Sweden’s first installation artists.

His installations have been presented at various institutions, including Moderna Museet and Centre Georges Pompidou, but none of them have been preserved in their entirety. Several of them will be recreated for the occasion, to present this artistic practice that was so deeply characterised by constant exploration and a conceptual approach, addressing subjects and issues that are acutely relevant to this day.
