Modern life often forces us into strange and awkward social situations, something Swedish artist Johanna Billing seems painfully aware of. Somewhere between document and fiction, her films record moments that she breezily calls ‘on the surface, quiet, normal and everyday’ but which become increasingly ‘dysfunctional and weird’…
"WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS REVOLUTIONARY GENERATION IS NOT WHAT THE YOUNG PEOPLE WANTFREEDOM. EVERYBODY HAS ALWAYS WANTED THAT."

"WHAT IS DIFFERENT IS THE WAY THEY GO AFTER IT. IT´S A MATTER OF PRACTICAL APPLICATION. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY WANT, BUT THEY DON´T KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO REACH FOR IT."
