The point of departure of the exhibition The TV Trampoline is children’s television during the period 1965–1985. Artists and authors have created new works inspired by television series such as Gena the Crocodile, Sesame Street, Our Little Sandman, and Professor Balthazar. These programmes have been the springboard, or trampoline, for each artist’s and author’s own memories and reflections. Their interpretations touch on topics such as how children’s television links to issues of memory, citizenship, education, and political movements.
Participants: Petra Bauer, Ida Börjel & Lo Hillarp, Andjeas Ejiksson, Annika Eriksson, Jennifer Hayashida, Salad Hilowle, Balsam Karam, Behzad Khosravi Noori, Runo Lagomarsino, Katarina Pirak Sikku and Olivia Plender.
The TV Trampoline / From Children’s Television to Contemporary Art and Literature was curated by Maria Lind and Andjeas Ejiksson.
