Magasin 3 <3 Handelshögskolan, a unique film series at Stockholm School of Economics
From spring 2013 onwards, a series of eight key film-works from Magasin 3’s collection will be on show at Handelshögskolan’s premises in central Stockholm. At the heart of this joint effort, lies a wish to embrace and convey the particular spirit of experimentation and the newness of vision that these films represent.
The invention of the camera holds a special significance within the history of art, especially so for women artists. Women have from the outset made use of the camera in order to achieve something new. The series showcases a selection of video artworks made by women from the mid-nineties to the present. These films, each in their own way, represent a subtle but notable shift in perspective – a rearrangement of vision that questions established forms and conventions. With this project Magasin 3 – together with Handelshögskolan – wants to communicate a shared belief that art is a form of expression that continues to grow and enrich, as it is seen and challenged by new audiences and new situations.
