When Corona came to Sweden, the Royal Library opened its digital magazine archive, with news from 1864 until to today. One can write a word or name and it is quite certain that these words has been written during this long time. I, like many others, tend to search for something personal in the digital news base, as if it could give me an answer. Like a religious or psychological act.

Joanna Lombard was born in Algeria in 1972, Lives in Sweden. Her work explores issues of language, identity, origin and exclusion. Her work has been exhibited in shows and biennials like Children of the Children of the Revolution, Färgfabriken, Momentum 8 – Tunnel Vision!
