14 Nobel Laureates on inspiration, role models and the value of passing something on.
When we meet people, they influence us and we in turn influence them. Sometimes that influence can forever change how we see and perceive the world. The exhibition Legacy is about those traces that are left behind. From the will of Alfred Nobel – a document that has left an enduring legacy in cultures far beyond the borders of Sweden – to the Nobel Laureates' own stories and reflections on the legacies that they both have left and been inspired by.
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.
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.
