Poesin måste göras av alla! (Poetry must be made by all!)

Condition report

Good

Poetry must be made by all! was an 1969 exhibition held at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. The exhibition focused on a series of political-aesthetic constellations, in which new potential for art could be discerned, other than that offered by Western middle-class societies in general.

”For some time it has become clear that a significant dematerialisation of art is taking place. A work of art can be born and disappear within a few weeks or destroy itself in a few hours. The different technical species that earlier were carefully kept apart are being mixed, the art forms borrow from each other without hesitation, the categories blur. The creator of the work can be an individual but it may also be a group.”
