Lauren Greenfield

Generation Wealth

20 March — 30 August, 2020

Lauren Greenfield’s Generation Wealth, that now opens at Fotografiska Stockholm, is high paced. Full speed ahead. But is it a Stairway to Heaven or a Highway to Hell you see?

Full throttle all the way, whether it going to the school party of a young Kim Kardashian, steering inconceivably luxurious yachts and private jets – or meeting the owner of the longest limousine in the world, that has its own helipad.

Imitation castles, status, your own body, the looks of your children, or your career: everything is built with the same fervour and obsession.

Seriously, what are they doing, these people who have everything, but still always want more and never seem to be satisfied?! But for every indignant cry over what “the other” is doing, a door opens into yourself. Take a look in there, among your nooks and crannies: these all-too-often unknown places, that both the world and you would be better off for, if you had the courage to start exploring. 
Why do we even accept such an unsustainable world order?

"I use the extreme to reach the commonplace. What are the driving forces behind these excesses and extremes? What is fuelling this destructive development of unsustainable consumption, and the idea that our possessions and achievements are the things that make our lives feel meaningful?" says Lauren Greenfield.
