In recent years, Nordic art has become increasingly influential on the international art scene. We Are All Normal is an anthology of artists writings from the Nordic and Baltic region, providing an essential overview of this exciting and productive period in contemporary art. By gathering together writings by the artists themselves. We Are All Normal looks at art from an artistic rather than art historical point of view, with texts that are poetic, playful, critical and celebratory. Following a number of thematics or lines of enquiry, the texts consider the much maligned Nordic tradition as well as the hyped 'Nordic Miracle' of the 1990s. Also examined are pop and politics, the predicament of the welfare state model, constructions of self, questions of gender and institutional critique, and 'northern style'.
