Museum curator Brita Täljedal gives a guided tour in the "Carl Johan De Geer / The Big Misconception" exhibition, currently on show on the third floor of Bildmuseet. Language: Swedish.
Ever since his debut in the 1960s, Carl Johan De Geer (b. 1938) has been a prominent figure in Swedish culture. Innovative, provocative and brilliantly versatile, he has worked as an artist, designer, film maker, photographer, scenographer and author. But from the start he wanted to become a textile designer.
Bildmuseet's exhibition "The Big Misconception" presents Carl Johan De Geer's textile works. Fabrics and pattern sketches are on display together with photographs from the same period.
Carl Johan De Geer / The Big Misconception is produced by Bildmuseet, Umeå University.
