On World Peace Day, 8 May, 70 years after the end of the Second World War, we open Foldout - a work in progress since 2008 by Katarina Eismann. This work is a complex installation based on a re-enactment of her father's dramatic escape from Copenhagen to Malmö in the midst of the Second World War.

Part 1 Remembering a Flight to Exile is a complex installation based on the stories about the family's escape through Europe during the Second World War. It is told from different perspectives, and takes place and materialises in the present. Who is remembering? And whose memories do we recall? The work was created in a studio as a collaboration between an artist, musician, choreographer, performance artist and journalist, who explored the possibility of processing these memories from the vantage point of a different time and place. It was shown for the first time at Uppsala Konstmuseum in 2009.

Part 2 In Via looks at what it entails to inherit memories of war, to grow up in the shadow of previous events such as flight and exile. As an aftermath to peace, the memories of the war were passed down for generations. Stories are inherited, and new constellations of experiences arise, in perpetual change. Foldout explores how the individual story is part of collective memory, and what happens when the story is transferred to the present day. New diasporas are constantly adding experiences to our shared history.

In association with Moderna Museet Malmö, an addition to the Foldout project is created with help from students and teachers at Malmö latinskola upper secondary school, who are participating in a series of workshops on the theme of "the legacy and transformation of memory", with Katarina Eismann and the Museum's art educator Anna Rowland, and the journalist Merete Monberg. A new part of Foldout will evolve during the summer. This autumn, Moderna Museet Malmö will pursue its Foldout project with new groups of participants.

Foldout is made possible with dedicated funding from the Fredrik Roos Foundation and the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, the Sveriges Bildkonstnärsfond, Kulturkontakt Nord and Stockholm County Council.
