The exhibition at Lunds konsthall is specifically spun around this painting’s specific destiny of having been degraded to the status of fake copy and how the well-known American vision of history the painting represents may be transferred to a Swedish context. Swedes migrated in great numbers to the United States a hundred years ago, but what is their relation to American culture today? What is the problematic around this? Which migrations do people in Sweden experience today? How does Sweden address issues of national belonging and identity? How does it define authenticity and value?
