SOAPBOX — SOAPBOX
Collaboration with Carl Marcus Sjöberg.
Soapbox is a collaboration with The Swedish State Archive, and is based on the connection between today's data collection and historical archives. Through printed matter it raises questions about surveillance, power, technology, and monopoly. Browsing its contents, the viewer draws lines in a fragmented connect-the-dots, as if digging through an archive.
The name Soapbox refers to the type of box agitators would speak from publicly in early 20th-century America.
Soapbox has been displayed at both Riksarkivet and Gothenburg City Library.
