Traversing through memories and photo albums, inspired by the Flower Power movement and the film Easy Rider, Maria Magnusson explores the 1968 foundation of Swedish copper club Sofia Hogs in a filmic collaboration with Linus Winstam.
Maria Magnusson lives and works in Göteborg. Magnusson completed a Master’s degree in Photography and a Bachelor’s degree in Art History and Theory at the Göteborg University in Sweden. Her practice is strongly influenced by photographic tradition and she works both with still and moving images, sometimes combining them. She is also interested in experimenting with sound, having collaborated on several projects with Linus Winstam aka DJ Bruce Leenus.
Magnusson has exhibited at dOCUMENTA (13) (Kassel, Germany), Jihlava Documentary Film Festival (Czech Republic), The Images Festival (Toronto, ON) and the Antimatter Film Festival (Victoria, BC).
