Exhibition & furniture design
Etnografiska Museet, Forum för Levande Historia & Riksutställningar, Stockholm, Sweden 2010

This long-standing project included 2 simultaneously presented exhibitions at the Ethnographic Museum and Living History Forum in Stockholm which was then later reduced into one smaller touring exhibition.The exhibition gathered historical objects, personal stories and several interactive / pedagogical features, looking to discuss complex subject matters such as race, ethnicity and colonialism, raising awareness about, and unveiling past misconceptions. Based on this shared concept, two distinct exhibitions were designed complementing each other in content and form, where the impression of a disconcerting institutional archive brought into broad daylight was enhanced by the exhibition design with its twisted furniture assemblage, deprived of their original function and meaning.
