Lotta Antonsson belongs to a generation of Swedish artists who emerged in the 1990s, inspired by post-structuralist theory and art exploring new media as it pertains to identity formation. For nearly three decades, her work has questioned the objectification of women with irony and self-distance. Her exploration and exploitation of lens-based images disseminated via printed matter are at the heart of this project. Antonsson uses her immense personal archive of vintage fashion, erotic, and lifestyle magazines and record covers to examine the historical and photographic representation of women from a feminist perspective.
Lotta Antonsson studied fine arts and photography in Stockholm at the University of Arts, Crafts and Design and at the Royal Art Academy in Copenhagen. Antonsson was a professor of photography (2007 – 2016) at the Valand Academy of Art and Design in Gothenburg. Her works have been in numerous international exhibitions, including Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Magasin III, Stockholm, Capture Photofestival /Trapp projects, Vancouver, Villa San Michele, Capri, the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art in Riga, Photobiennale in Brighton, UK, and the Daegu Photo Biennale in South Korea.
