Excerpt from curator and critic Lars Vilks text for the catalogue:

“The real breakdown in art took place at the beginning of the 1990s. Only then did it become clear that art as modernism and an aesthetic expression had capitulated to a “post modern” attitude where anything goes.

This strange shift from form to content had become reality, at least in international contemporary art. Now that we are a few yers into the 21st century, “international contemporary art” – the movement has no other name yet; at a push it could be called “post-modern” or “social critique” – is well established, and art pedagogues are constantly carrying new programmes to spread understanding of it.”
