"Each new exhibition could be seen as a room in that hotel, being in constant flux. A relatively inhospitable hotel with stairs leading nowhere and lots of locked doors, but also with large halls, intimate and erotic rooms and sometimes, breathtaking panoramas."

The book features a selection of the artist´s works from the past ten years, in which the themes that have always characterized Annika von Hausswolff´s production are developed, and her importance as one of the leading Nordic artists is manifested.
Some recurrent subjects in Annika von Hausswolff´s works are patriarchal structures, criminology, global capitalism, the subconscious and a profound interest in the photographic image with a predilection for analogue technology.

Annika von Hausswolff (born 1967) lives and works in Gothenburg. In 2007-2012, she was a prominent professor of photography at the University of Gothenburg, with great influence on the younger generation of photographers. She represented Sweden at the Venice Biennale in 1999, and her work is represented in many Swedish and significant international collections, such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art, Stockholm; Kiasma, Helsinki; Astrup Fearnley Collection, Oslo and the Hasselblad Foundation, Gothenburg.
The book was produced in conjunction with Hasselblad foundation and the exhibition at Hasselblad Center.
