Anders Petersen: City Diary @ Stockholms Stad, Stadsmuseet, Medeltidsmuseet och Stockholmia
jun 1 kl. 11:00 – sep 12 kl. 17:00


Anders Petersen har i över ett halvt sekel fotograferat stadsliv ur ett personligt perspektiv. I serien City Diary (stadsdagbok) med fotografier från hela världen berättar Petersen om egna erfarenheter och livet för dem han mött, i både privata och offentliga ögonblick, under många års resande och bildskapande. I utställningen på Stadsmuseet visas såväl bilder från Stockholm som från andra städer i världen. Fotografierna är tagna under en 50-årsperiod.

Anders Petersen: City Diary/Spårvagnsfönster i Hamburg

Anders Petersen är influerad av såväl efterkrigstidens skandinaviska dokumentärfotografi som samtida japansk fotokonst. Bilderna är poetiska, impressionistiska men också formellt strikta och med en stark intensitet. Petersens högkontrasterade, svartvita visioner av det moderna livet är en motvikt till de klichéer som förekommer i det dokumentära bildspråket.

Lennart af Petersenspriset 2019

Anders Petersen är mottagare av Lennart af Petersenspriset 2019, ett av Stockholms stads priser. Det har instiftats i fotografen Lennart af Petersens namn för att belöna en fotograf som på ett personligt och konstnärligt vis berättar något väsentligt om Stockholm som livsmiljö.

Juryns motivering:

”Från slutet på 1960-talet har årets pristagare Anders Petersen levt och verkat som fotograf. I sina bilder strävar Petersen efter att dokumentera och lyfta fram olika urbana subkulturer och sociala möten mellan människor. Från boken ’Gröna Lund’ (1973) och fram till senare projekt som exempelvis serien ’City Diary’, från det tidiga 2000-talet, har Stockholm varit en av de städer han alltid återkommit till i sitt arbete.”

Öppning

Utställningen planeras att öppna, samtidigt med Stadsmuseet, 1 juni 2021 och pågå till 12 september 2021.

Trends, future predictions and expert knowledge – Formex offers a range of digital activities in August @ Stockholmsmässan, digital
aug 24 kl. 09:00 – aug 26 kl. 18:00


Due to the current national situation, Formex in August has been canceled. Instead, Formex is providing a whole host of digital activities – the studio program Formex Talks on the three themes of Sustainability, Retail and Trends will be streamed on August 24–26, plus the trends for this fall will be presented in a digital trend guide.

Formex in August has been canceled due to the current national situation and the restrictions that the government has had to introduce. Until we can get together again, Team Formex is working intensively on producing digital activities for August 24–26, to update you on all the latest in the industry.

“We were so hoping to be able to hold a Formex in August. Instead, we will be organizing digital activities, enabling our visitors and exhibitors to take part in Formex Talks full of inspiration, trends and expert knowledge on key subjects for everyone in our industry. We now look forward to being able to meet visitors and exhibitors in January next year,” says Sara Ek, Event Manager for Formex.

Formex Talks will be streamed each morning on August 24–26, offering three packed studio programs with interesting guests, topical conversation and seminars. The three themes in the spotlight are Sustainability, Trends and Retail, with each program tackling the subject from a different perspective. Day 1 will see Maria Soxbo, journalist and co-founder of Klimatklubben, leading a program on the theme of Sustainability. Day 2 will be all about Trends, including a presentation of Formex Trends by designer and trend expert Jan Rundgren. The program will also examine the latest predictions for interior design. Day 3 will focus on the future of retail, with trend analyst Louise Byg Kongsholm, from Pej-gruppen, talking about how coronavirus has changed the consumer landscape in both the short and long term.

In addition, Formex Trends will be presented in a digital trend guide. This time, Team Formex is pulling together the trends in collaboration with experts such as Jan Rundgren. All the new products from the fair’s exhibitors will also be showcased on the Formex website.

Nordbygg has been moved to April 26-29, 2022 @ Mässvägen 1 Älvsjö, 125 80 Stockholm
apr 26 kl. 09:00 – apr 29 kl. 20:00


Last week, Stockholmsmässan reported that two of the spring’s biggest events – Formex and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair which were due to be held in January and February have been cancelledNow the decision has also been taken to postpone Nordbygg from April 20-23, 2021 to April 26-29, 2022.

Nordbygg is Northern Europe’s largest meeting place for the construction and real estate industry. Held every two years, the event attracts around 50,000 visitors from the construction sector in Sweden, Scandinavia, the Baltic states and the rest of Europe. In recent years, Nordbygg’s international reputation has grown, the number of foreign visitors has doubled and the proportion of foreign exhibitors has steadily increased.

Since the Swedish Government resolved to ban all large public gatherings and events, Nordbygg’s project team and Stockholmsmässan has intensively worked to enable a safe exhibition to take place alongside with intensive lobbying work to be allowed to open under safe conditions. However, due to the current situation in Sweden and elsewhere, it has become clear that the implementation of Nordbygg in April 2021 is no longer viable. In consultation with the industry, we have therefore decided to move the next iteration of Nordbygg to April 26-29, 2022 – keeping to the regular season and year for the event.

“We could never have predicted that the pandemic would continue this long. Nordbygg is our biggest and most internationally focused exhibition and everyone involved therefore needs a lot of time to prepare. It is therefore crucial that we give everyone plenty of notice about the situation regarding the exhibition. The reality in Sweden and internationally paints a stark picture and unfortunately the best thing we can do is to cancel the exhibition once again and hope for a safe and successful event in 2022 instead,” says Peter Söderberg, Event Manager Nordbygg.
