Children’s exhibition catalogue and audio guide.

Utopian Bodies – Fashion Looks Forward had children’s activities as a focal point. Author Anna-Klara Mehlich created a dedicated catalogue for children with tailored content and commissioned illustrations by Pernilla Stalfelt, Jojo Falk and Cajsa Wessberg. In addition, a children’s audio-guide, exhibition treasure hunt and adapted wall texts for a younger audience were produced.

In collaboration with Vega Määttä Siltberg, Linea Matei, Agnes Nissen and Sigrid Eggertsdottir, students from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, a children’s workshop area was built, which covered a range of activities such as sewing, drawing and sculpture tasks. A mini exhibition of children’s work and special classes with local exhibiting designers were held during weekends.

Special thank you to Ulrika Hägglund at Liljevalchs.
