Hannah Ryggen Triennale 2022

 - Hannah Ryggen Triennale 2022
Hannah Ryggen Triennale 2022 presents artists and works that can varyingly be seen in the light of Swedish-born Norwegian feminist textile artist Hannah Ryggen's legacy (1894–1970).
With the anti-monument as a prism, embodied truths are replaced with a multitude of alternatives. In this publication, the curators and invited authorsexplore the dialogues that take place between Hannah Ryggen's tapestries and the contemporary artists's woks in the triennale exhibitions, also mediated through a rich selection of images.
Hannah Ryggen's attitude toward hierarchical constructions is still confrontational. Her art invites dynamic readings, at the same time as it punctures fascist ideologies and literally outlasts structures in reinforced concrete. This is the strength and potential of her textile anti-monument.
