Modellarkivet

20 June - 26 August

Explore the magical model archive of Stockholm’s Urban Planning Department through the lens of Malin Pettersson Öberg and her film Modellarkivet.

More information

Free admission

Artist Malin Pettersson Öberg’s work asks questions about archives and how they help us to understand our surroundings. The  film about the model archive at the Urban Planning Department of the City of Stockholm reveals the tools that we use to understand our city and explores built and unbuilt visions of Stockholm, examining ideas connected to how we collectively organise our lives using miniature versions of large-scale cityscapes.

The large screen shows the film Modellarkivet. The subtitles are displayed separately. Towards the end of the space are two shelf units with around 50 models from the city’s Urban Planning Department model archive, evoking the experience of walking through its aisles.

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

Curator: Mikaela Steby Stenfalk
Graphic designer: Studio Reko

Thank you Stockholm’s Urban Planning Department, Filmform and Nils Fridén.
