TALK · Tuija Lindström: the teacher and the role model

2 May @ 17:30 - 19:00


Tuija Lindström: the teacher and the role model · a discussion between Mia Bengtsson Plynning, Niclas Östlind and Jenny Källman

Welcome to a conversation about Tuija Lindström as an educator and role model. This talk will be held in Swedish.

Niclas Östlind (Ph.D. in photography) and Jenny Källman (photographer and artist) talk with the exhibition’s curator Mia Bengtsson Plynning about Tuija Lindström’s work as a professor at the University of Photography and Film, now HDK-Valand – University of Art and Design.

In 1992, Tuija Lindström was appointed Sweden’s first female professor of photography. During her 10 years as a professor at the School of Photography, now the School of Photography and Film at the University of Gothenburg, she came to reform the education. The artistic level was raised and the education came to include more theoretical teaching with courses in, among other things, art history and feminist theory. With Tuija Lindström, the educational perspective was also broadened internationally and several famous critics, artists, photographers and philosophers worked as guest teachers at the school. During these years, the education also received a master’s level, which still today attracts photography students from Sweden and other countries.

From the breakthrough in the 1980s until her death, Tuija Lindström was a central figure in Swedish photography – first as a stylistic artist, then as a professor and mentor for several generations of photographers from the 1990s onwards. Her influence on Swedish photography and art has been decisive.


Mia Bengtsson Plynning is the curator of the exhibition Love & Death at Landskrona Foto and a member of the Association Tuija Lindström, which manages the artistic legacy of Tuija Lindström. She is also a co-owner and runs Link Image AB as well as image and film manager at Avicii Music AB. Over the years, she has worked with photography at an image agency, in exhibitions, as an independent photo editor and also taught at photography schools around the country.

Niclas Östlind is a dr. in photography, lecturer, researcher and vice-prefect for research at HDK-Valand. He has curated a large number of exhibitions with Swedish photographers and published several studies on Swedish photography history. Among other things, he was curator for Tuija Lindström’s large retrospective at Liljevalch’s art gallery in 2004 with the title Look at Us.

Jenny Källman is educated at the University of Photography in Gothenburg and at Konstfack in Stockholm, where she graduated in 2002. She is represented by the Hasselblad Foundation, Moderna museet and in several institutions and private collections. Her most recent solo exhibition was the one that received a lot of attention (we have our own song) at the Academy of Arts in 2023. She has also participated in several group exhibitions such as Artipelag’s The Visible 2014 and the Moderna museum’s Golden sunset 2017–2018. Sweden’s Allmänna Konstförening has chosen Jenny Källman’s Ghost Hunting as its yearbook for the year 2023. The book, which consists of a generous selection of images from Jenny Källman’s entire production, as well as newly written texts by Masha Taavoniku and Sara Walker, is a collaboration between SAK and Art and Theory Publishing.
