Götaplatsen & Art Museum, Göteborg
I've no idea what this painting is meant to represent or who painted it but I really like it anyway!!
Obviously photography is permitted in the museum - with flash too but no tripods.
I was disappointed to discover that I seem to have been in Goteburg the one week of the year when the Hasselblad centre had no exhibit as I really love seeing photography exhibits! :( The Art Hall next door has exhibits of modern and contemporary art although there wasn't much happening in there either when I visited!
Visiting the Hasselblad Center for photography.
Since Göteborg is where the 'Hassy' originates from, it seemed only fitting to learn a bit about it's history, even if it did seem a little crammed within the Göteborg Museum of Art. I was there for the exhibition of the book 'Outland', by Roger Ballen: an outstanding South African portrait photographer.
Gothenburg boasts a large art museum with collections from traditional to some fairly sizable modern art exhibits. The art museum was built before WWII and was ahead of its time architecturally.
this symbolises the maritim vocation of goteborg!
it was created by Carl Milles.
it's on the most cultural place of goteborg
It think it is always interesting to check out at least one museum...
If you don't like museums, I recommend that you still go there because you would have a nice view over the city.
