Malin Pettersson Öberg: The Model Archive

Experience Stockholm Stadsbyggnadskontor’s magical model archive through Malin Pettersson Öberg’s film The Model Archive.

The artist Malin Pettersson Öberg’s work raises questions about the function of the archive and helps us to understand our built environment. With her film on the model archive of the City of Stockholm, the artist lifts a discussion about the vision behind Stockholm’s built history.

Boxen at ArkDes

Boxen ↗ was a platform for fast-changing, experimental projects at ArkDes. It provided space for alternative voices to inspire discussions about architecture, design, and their relationship to society by promoting radical and responsive installations, exhibitions, events and dialogues by and between architects, designers, and thinkers. Designed by the emerging architecture studio Dehlin Brattgård ↗, Boxen opened in 2018 and was dismantled in 2023. All materials have been reused in the 2024 redesign of the museum’s spaces, designed by Arrhov Frick ↗.

The film Modellarkivet was produced with support from Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation ↗.

Thanks to Stadsbyggnadskontoret in Stockholm, Filmform ↗, and Nils Fridén.
