social democracy revisited The exhibition proposes that the Nordic discourses on Social Democracy in the Scandinavian countries may have a value in the current international political climate. At the same time, the exhibition highlights artworks that seem to contest this kind of purposefulness. Ultimately then, the exhibition intervenes into the realm between art and politics with the same ambivalence which is so prevalent in the Nordic system. Continues thru April 16.
