The freestanding publication IN & BEYOND SWEDEN: Journeys Through an Art Scene is published in conjunction with the opening of the Moderna Exhibition 2018. The book offers fascinating insights into current artistic expressions from a nation in the process of change.
For two years, the curator Joa Ljungberg and the artist Santiago Mostyn conducted comprehensive research into the Swedish art scene. This publication, a collaboration between Iaspis and Moderna Museet, presents their research process, while also highlighting a multitude of voices from the seminars that gathered art professionals from around the country.

The publication includes presentations of a total of 65 artists and articles written by 13 authors, all with different insights into the Swedish art scene.
