“With each step you fall forward slightly. And then catch yourself from falling.”

In Laurie Anderson’s quote, the everyday is paramount. Her observation on walking, on how we unconsciously are falling with every step, constitutes the point of departure for this exhibition, both as an observation and as a metaphor for life. Our sense of balance, the precondition for our ability to walk, also plays a central role in this exhibition.

“Magasin 3 curators Elisabeth Millqvist and Tessa Praun have jointly examined artistic practices spanning from the late 1960s till today. This makes it possible for the viewer to experience our contemporary moment from a different and visually strong perspective,” says David Neuman, Magasin 3’s director.
