Influenced by expressions such as black metal and punk, as well as philosophy and urban planning, Johan Zetterquist has transformed Göteborgs Konsthall into a large installation comprising, among other things, wall paintings, sculptures and videos. Several of the works have been produced specifically for the exhibition, others span an entire decade. Zetterquist presents a dystopian and ironic view of the world where no one escapes one’s fate no matter which social class one belongs to. His art expresses a consistent resistance to power structures and supremacy, and is especially directed against the church, the state and capitalism. His social criticism is formulated primarily as visionary proposals and models of projects, which thus far have not been realised. Zetterquist’s proposals invoke a different world order where aesthetics and freedom take precedence over economic growth.
