Plastic memories.

“When collector Thomas Lindblad discovered a simple red mug, he was inspired to say the least. Some 15 years after his first encounter, the Nordiska Museum  in Stockholm Sweden has recently opened the Plastic! show which uses Lindblad’s collection of household plastics from the 1940s to the 1970s as the spring board for exploring plastics from its socio-political history, design evolution to human body politics.

The exhibition is divided into six disciplines, but perhaps the most interesting feature of the exhibition asks visitors to recount memories triggered by encounters with plastics. An act that accounts for an invitation to unite cultural production as it enables it.”
