The season’s events keep with the spirit of Lars Fredrikson, representative of that of his time.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Pontus Hultén, who would later become the first director of the Museum of Modern Art at the Centre Pompidou, was head of the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. Under his leadership, the museum turned into a vibrant venue collaborating with innovative institutions such as EMS (Elektronmusikstudion), the centre for Swedish electroacoustic music and sound art. Thanks to EMS, Stockholm was positioned as being a European forerunner in this new genre of music.

To keep this story alive and in response to the work of the three artists, the exhibition will be accompanied by a rich program of performances, discussions and concerts, two of which celebrate EMS’ 60 year anniversary. Image, sound, music and poetry will meet at a crossroads at the Institut suédois and its garden.
