The essence of Swedish visual artist Annika von Hausswolff’s oeuvre lies in her fascination with photography’s documentary power and ability to create scenes charged with clues to what may have happened. Time and again she returns to certain themes in her work, such as patriarchal structures, criminology, and the subconscious. Her images are full of references and her staged scenes destabilise the boundary between fact and fiction. This book, published on the occasion of an exhibition curated by Dragana Vujanovic at the Hasselblad Center, presents a decade of Von Hausswolff’s work since 2006. Included are numerous reproductions and an interview with the artist.
