Rädda Historien!

Rädda Historien! (Save History!) is the title of The Museum of National Antiquities' new exhibition, which opens on March 26, 2009. The exhibition deals with problems arising from climate change and pollution, and its effects on our historical heritage.

Pollution threatens not only the future but also our past. Performing Pictures' Robert Brecevic in collaboration with artist Patrik Qvist and film maker Jesper Wachtmeister have created a new and interactive video installation in the entrance of The Museum of National Antiquities. Decomposing letters disappear down the earth. Visitors contribute by their mere presence to MEMORIES being exposed to wear. But in contrast to the real pollution, the letters resurrect, once things have proceeded too far and everything is lost. We're not quite as optimistic regarding the future of the planet!
