HUMANITET
Apr 8—Sep 11 2022

This spring’s exhibition at Sven-Harrys konstmuseum offers a moving look back on the 1930s, and on four of the most loved Swedish artists of the last century: Vera Nilsson, Sven Xet Erixson, Bror Hjorth and Albin Amelin. Serving as the epicentre for the exhibition is a collection of illustrations that was published in 1933 in the one-off publication Humanitet, which was a call to action from the contributing artists, whose illustrations portrayed the tightening hold of fascism in Europe, and the growing threat to democracy. The artists’ direct idioms, keen observations, and desire to make a difference combined to make their works impactful contributions to the contemporary discourse and a call to all to take a stand.
