The Manipulate the World – Connecting Öyvind Fahlström group exhibition is on at Stockholm’s Moderna Museet, opening October 19 and running to January 21.
Curated by Fredrik Liew with Goldin + Senneby, the show includes work by 28 artists including Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Harun Farocki, Candice Lin, Jonas Staal, Hito Steyerl, Öyvind Fahlström, Sondra Perry and Pratchaya Phinthong, among others.
Over two floors of the large museum, works that both “explore and challenge Öyvind Fahlström’s ideas on manipulation and theatricality” will fill the space and be in conversation with each other. This also includes four pieces by Fahlström including a series of paintings Is the world a playing field? (1960’s), large installation The theatrical in motion (1964-66) video ‘Actions in public space between the levels’ (1966) and large sculpture ‘World Bank as the centre of a hidden zone’ (1971).
