Can artistic representations explain a Nobel Prize? In tis exhibition the visitor meets the creative abilities of students. With the help of fashion, music, design and illustrations, students from Beckmans College of Design and the Royal College of Music have created free interpretations of this year's Nobel Prizes. The pieces are creations inspired by the discoveries and achievments made by the Nobel Laureates in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Peace and Economic Sciences.
A mini exhibit on the Nobel Laureate in Literature of 1996 and her collage art. Besides writing poetry, Wisława Szymborska made thousands of quirky postcard sized collages, which she gave and sent to people that she liked. One who received many such collages was her close friend and translator Anders Bodegård. The exhibition shows a selection of these collages.
All Nobel Laureates are awarded, in addition to the medal, the prize amount and the honour, a diploma. These diplomas are made by Swedish and Norwegian artists, calligraphists and book binders uniquely for each Nobel Laureate. Prints of the current Nobel Diplomas will be shown in a small exhibition in the Bistro Nobel.
This is an exhibition where Swedish, Chinese, and Canadian book binders have been invited to bind works of the Nobel Laureates Mo Yan and Alice Munro. The exihibition is a collaboration between the Nobel Museum, Svenska Bokbinderiföreningen, Bokbindarmästareföreningen and Bokbindare-Gesällskapet.
The Nobel Museum has produced travelling exhibitions since its inception in 2001. The tours range from large ones, appearing in exhibition halls from New Delhi to Tokyo, to small displays co-produced with schools in Uganda.
