  • My daughter and I visited my favorite museum in Gothenburg, to see the show Girls, Girls, Girls. A good and a little different exhibition with various elements of moving image and common (though unusual) photographs. Girls who are not posing but are themselves. Norm-breaking images. The Museum Shop is as always a bargain store, not price wise but many funny postcards and great books for the living room table.

  • Gothenburg art museum has a fine collection of Nordic art from 1900-century and beginning of the 20th century. There are not many works of the individual artist, but on the other hand, many artists represented, which makes comparison possible and exciting. The works are accompanied to informative presentation that are not lifted up on a level art history that ordinary people cannot keep up with.
