Kajsa Dahlberg

Sweden

Kajsa Dahlberg, who graduated from the Malmö Art Academy in 2003 and completed the Whitney Program in New York in 2008, works with image, text and sound. In her practice she explores the construction and mediation of narratives in the context of political representation, history and identity, while investigating their relations to the medium itself.

One of her recent projects, The Femø Women’s Camp 2008, deals with a feminist summer camp held by the Danish Women’s movement since 1971. Dahlberg’s installation shows a both intellectual and emotional picture of the camp by revealing both its preconditions (the contract) and physical dismantling the (film).
