This reader is a collection of writings in Swedish by Hans Hedberg (1954–2016), a curator, editor, photographer and teacher. Hedberg played a pivotal role in the establishment of the postmodern perspective as well as the development of critical dialogue on art and photography in early 90s Sweden at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm. As a dean and teacher at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, University of Gothenburg he successfully developed artistic research practices. Hedberg wrote a vast number of texts as a critic, curator and lecturer. The texts collected in Matter of Concern span over twenty-five years of writing, and were originally published in newspapers, journals and for exhibitions.
