Protected content presents the life’s work of Birger Carlstedt Protected content in an extensive retrospective exhibition that encompasses the artist’s entire oeuvre, all the way from his abstract experiments of the Protected content to the Concretist period beginning in the Protected content . The exhibition includes a reconstruction of the legendary café Le Chat Doré.
Birger Carlstedt was a pioneer in abstract art and a multitalented dandy who worked with fields such as interior design, design and staging, in addition to painting. He followed and participated in the discussion around art during his time, dared to experiment outside the mainstream and familiarised himself with new artistic movements during his many travels.
The exhibition is based on Protected content collections, which the museum has inherited from Birger Carlstedt and his spouse concert pianist France Ellegaard.

See you there!
