18TH CENTURY – SWEDEN AND EUROPE
A century of difficulties and hardship, but also a century marked by a growing belief in science, optimism for the future and utilitarian thinking. This new exhibition at Nationalmuseum Jamtli focuses on the relations between Sweden and the rest of Europe during the 18th century in the field of visual arts and applied arts. War, diplomacy, trade and the birth of rococo are just some of the themes addressed in the works shown. Portraits, landscapes, everyday interior pictures, and also unique sketches and drawings that have never before been exhibited are among the 180 works from the Nationalmuseum’s collections.

Plant-based, meat or insect burgers? Why do we like certain types of food, but screw up our faces at things we’re not used to? And while some people load up their larders in the autumn and devote whole weekends to cooking, others live on ready-made food and are regulars at the local food store or take-away.
Jamtli’s “MAT” (FOOD) exhibition takes you on a food-focused journey through time, looking at our relationship to food, from hunting and fishing a thousand years ago to today’s trends when food is no longer about survival.
