Malmö has a lost past. Visit the city today and there is very little evidence that it ever had a 1960s, 70s and 80s.
But now these buried memories are being recreated through a blend of visuals and other styles of art.
Avoiding works that have already been recognised, curators Clemens Altgård and Ola Åstrand have put together an exhibition that features the best underground works by various artists that marked a period of both economic prosperity and recession in Sweden.
These pieces will provide you with an insight into the diverse city’s forgotten past.

In We Shout and Shout, but no one listens, creating something aesthetically appealing out of the tragedy of war is the perfect juxtaposition for trauma that is difficult to articulate.
The artists, who have all lived through the turmoil of war, present visual depictions of war-time tragedy to remember the forgotten, reveal atrocities that the global community hasn’t been able to understand, and actualise suffering in order to make their voices heard.
Through their creations the artists can cope with their grief and invite viewers to feel as if they were really there.
