Moderna Museet Presents Another Story. 1000 Photographs from the Moderna Museet Collection

Moderna Museet presents Another Story. 1000 Photographs from the Moderna Museet Collection an exhibition on view through 31 December 2011. Another Story gives a fresh angle on art history, based on works from the Moderna Museet collection.

Moderna Museet has one of Europe’s finest collections of photography, ranging from 1840 to the present day. Many of the most famous names in photographic history are represented, and the collection comprises more than 100,000 works. The re-hanging of the permanent collection exhibition will be done in three stages. In February, we will open the first part, Another Story: Possessed by the Camera, which presents contemporary photography-based art. Just before summer, we open Another Story: See the World!, presenting the period 1920-1980. This autumn, finally, we look at the early days of photography. Another Story: Written in Light presents the pioneers of photography from 1840 to the first three decades of the 20th century. In autumn 2011 and for the rest of the year, the entire permanent collection exhibition will consist of photography and photo-based art. In 2012, many of our famous paintings and sculptures will, of course, be on display in the exhibition again, in a new presentation of the collection.
