Abstract [en]

The article provides a discussion of the notions "now" and "then" as they are confronted in an institution such as the Moderna Museet, where the ongoing, dialogue and intentions are felt as dimensions also connected to the narratives and explanations of "history". The art museum is described as a kind of mausoleum for past events, but as parts of the museum art works nevertheless become reactivated in the present, in the work of memory. The article gives flash-backs of the American breakthrough of the 1960s and the art questions at stake - not only what art is but what it could be. The article demonstrates how memory works with and reworks the meaning of art, in a reminding and challenging analysis of Robert Rauschenberg's Monogram.
