Product Description

Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt's oeuvre is characterized by a strong social commitment. The catalogue includes works about the media, power, and history. They invite us to be critical of dominant narratives about the world today, while examining how photography is used in the creation of these narratives. A guiding principle in their oeuvre are the gaps between what is visible and what is told. By exploring the limitations, challenges, and possibilities of photography, the artists aim to unfold and expose overlooked parts of official narratives. These are the stories that are uncomfortable. They would most likely have no natural platform if they did not appear in Källström-Fäldt's projects. The artists' exhaustive body of work on Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is perhaps the most striking example of their commitment to exploring narratives that do not fit a certain mould. The ongoing project examines the media image of Assange following his exposure of US war crimes. Looking into the gaps of the Assange story, the artists shed light on anti-democratic forces and attacks on press freedom.
