Panel discussion: From Chaos to Insight – On Collections

How does one build a collection today, that is both in tune with the times and relevant for the future? What are good working models for making the collection an active part of the organization?

In March of 2014 Grafikens Hus in Mariefred burned down to the ground. This extreme situation ignited many questions, among them how does one build a new collection today? In collaboration with Riksutställningar (the Swedish Exhibition Agency), Grafikens Hus has organized four talks around these questions to take place during 2015. Among partners in this conversation series are Magasin III, Nationalmuseum, Marabouparken konsthall and Eskilstuna konstmuseum. International guests will be invited to reflect on these issues.

Elvira Dyangani Ose, Goldsmiths University of London, and Gothenburg International Biennial for Contemporary Art.
Annie Fletcher, Curator Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and Tutor De Appel, Amsterdam.
Anders Jansson, Director and Curator Museum Anna Nordlander, Skellefteå.
David Neuman, Museum Director Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art, Stockholm.
Moderator: Nina Beckmann, Director Grafikens Hus, Mariefred.

Recorded on April 14 , 2015 at Magasin III, Stockholm.
