Guided tours in Swedish / “On the Thresholds of Knowledge”
The point of departure for this exhibition is Kungshuset, the King’s House, one of Lund’s oldest buildings and the home of the university during several centuries. With works by international and local artists the exhibition reflects on the notion of knowledge: What is knowledge? How and where is it produced and used? And who is it for? The Indian art collective Raqs Media Collective produces a site-specific work stretching across several rooms in the building and functioning like the exhibition’s spine. The university is a vital part of Lund, but it is also a closed institution. In this exhibition, the entire King’s House is opened to the public for the first time ever and visitors are given the opportunity to wander freely on all floors and discover both the building and the art.
