Karl Holmqvist is firmly established on the international art scene, and is undoubtedly one of Sweden’s most prominent artists. Following exhibitions at MoMA and the Venice Biennale, Moderna Museet is presenting his extensive body of works in a condensed retrospective spanning from the early 1990s to today.
The main part of Holmqvist’s oeuvre consists of text, published in various periodicals and then processed into posters, readings, videos, wall drawings and installations. Highbrow and lowbrow, popular music, poetry, politics, literary quotations, references to art history and letters of the alphabet all interbreed.
