This year marks 25 years since the founding of Magasin 3 – an achievement of which we are incredibly proud. We have introduced a long list of artists to the Scandinavian art scene and our thorough solo exhibitions have become something of a hallmark of the institution.
Magasin 3 keeps a short ‘wish list’ for future exhibitions and Ai Weiwei’s name has been on it. We have followed his artistic development closely, captivated by his strength, versatility, originality, and not least by his irrepressible courage. At last we are bringing his work to Sweden to give our visitors, many of whom have followed us faithfully, the opportunity to experience Ai Weiwei’s greatness. Much has happened in Ai Weiwei’s life during the past few years, most markedly his escalating conflict with the Chinese regime, which perceives his very existence as a threat to the nation. Under such difficult conditions it is not easy for anyone to stay focused and continue practicing one’s profession, and Ai Weiwei is no exception. In the past year he has spent much of his time just surviving, and attempting to counter the false allegations directed against him. This persistence has made him an international symbol for human rights. Because his creativity is totally without compromise, he attains new ideas and visual expressions that carry a universal importance and transcend all boundaries.
We are grateful for the wholehearted support we received during the preparation of the exhibition from Ai Weiwei and a number of his most loyal co-workers at his studio FAKE Design in Beijing, as well as our friends at the Faurschou Foundation and Galerie Urs Meile.

New for this spring in Magasin 3’s café is that the popular Jin & Peeters Deli is represented.
We offer delicious homemade soups with seasonal ingredients, fresh salads and sandwiches as well as sweet home-baked treats, Belgian waffles and ice cream. To the delight of our younger visitors the homemade ice cream can also be ordered with pancakes. In addition, Haugaard Coffee Roaster has created an exclusive espresso blend for Magasin 3 this spring.
Welcome to the heart of Magasin 3’s lobby: the café!
The café has the same opening hours as the rest of Magasin 3.
Since its establishment in 2010 Jin & Peeters Dumpling and Chicken Deli has become a much-talked about favorite on Kungsholmen, Stockholm.
