May 1st - October 29th
The video installation Lågan vs. Nålsögat: A Sequel takes as its point of departure two films: Lågan from 1973 by Sandell Film AB, and Nålsögat from 1975 by Jan Troell. The two films depict everyday life at the ship building company Kockums in Malmö from fundamentally different angels, and can be said to highlight two conflicting perspectives in how to reach social justice and better living conditions for people present in the political debate in Sweden and many other countries during the 20th century: one claiming that social progress has to be pursued within the realm of work, and the other that the realm of production will never make any real progress toward humanitarian emancipation possible.
