Freidrich Jürgenson – From the Studio for Audioscopic Research. An exhibition curated by CM von Hausswolff.
Carl Michael von Hausswolff has during the last years been one of the most internationally acclaimed artists to come out of Sweden. His work covers a wide scope of interest – where you will find anything from sound projects (he is also one of Sweden’s most acclaimed composers) to installations and photography along side the conceptual projects.
Friedrich Jürgenson (1903-1987) was, as von Hausswolff, a man of many talents: painter, archeologist, opera singer – and a pioneer within EVP, electronic voice phenomena, which he is most known for. His library of recored voices “from the other side” is unique.
When CM von Hausswolff this spring started a series of projects he is curating for Färgfabriken in Stockholm, Friedrich Jürgenson was the subject of the first one. The subject has a lot of references to von Hausswolff’s own work, without ever giving any direct keys. To the exhibition von Hausswolff has brought together the studio of Jürgenson, including the library of EVP-recordings – along with a documenation of how the press treated Jürgenson at the time and of his work as a painter, opera singer and archeologist. The exhibition is now opened again for the fall season at Färgfabriken.
On the 22nd at 18.00 there will be a talk on von Hausswolff and Jürgenson with Hans Ulrich Obrist and Carsten Höller, moderated by Daniel Birnbaum and Jan Åman. After the talk CM von Hausswolff presents sounds in the bar at Färgfabriken.
