The Moderna Exhibition 2006 looks at the relationship between the self and the surrounding world. The mass media, for instance, mixes fictitious stories and personal accounts from different parts of the world with real events. Geography is fragmented. More than ever, personal experience is a tool for finding ones bearings in this environment. Like the fragmented perception of time and space, personal experiences arise from varying, and sometimes contradictory, situations. They do not simply stem from concrete definitions of who I am or where I come from. Thus, the question is no longer Who am I? but: When am I?.

The selection of artists mixes the firmly established with the relatively unknown. The spatial presentation has been strongly emphasised, with a view to enhancing the overall experience. The exhibition is arranged along a route, through the temporary exhibitions hall, via one of the sections usually devoted to the collection from descriptions of the world, to imaginative renderings of inner realities to the entrance areas of the museum and the Stockholm suburb of Hökarängen.

Admission price includes the catalogue. In order to give more depth to the exhibition and also make it more accessible, a 348-page catalogue, with essays, artist biographies and illustrations.
