Went to Malmö Konsthall today to look at some photos by Åke Hedström, who has documented many of the exhibitions here for decades. The main space is closed while they’re building the László Moholy-Nagy exhibition, but the C room is still open. One of the Hedström photographs shows the notorious Brillo boxes printed by (3)Screen in Malmö, then called (2)Screen, and located in their cellar when the photo was taken. This image is not very good, since I had to sneak one with my phone, but here it is.

Browsing the gift shop I found a very nice catalog designed by Research and Development from Stockholm. It was for Momentum, the 5th Nordic Biennal of Contemporary Art in Norway 2009. Bound, but without a hard cover, which seems to be all the more common now, but probably more original two years ago. Looking at R&D’s site there was a lot of other material made, including the tabloid you can see at the bottom here.
