Can artistic representations explain a Nobel Prize?
Nobel Creations is about the 2014 Nobel Prizes with both descriptive and interpretive elements. In the exhibition, artefacts donated by this year's Nobel Laureates are shown, and you can take part of the history behind the objects and learn about the laureates and their achievements.
The visitor meets the creative abilities of young students. With the help of fashion, music, design and illustrations, students from Beckmans College of Design and the Royal College of Music have created free interpretations of this year's Nobel Prizes. The pieces are creations inspired by the discoveries and achievments made by the Nobel Laureates in Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Literature, Peace and Economic sciences.
The exhibition also explores what unites Nobel Laureates, artists and creators: creativity. The courage to think in new ways, to question established theories, and innovative combinations of insights from different fields – defining concepts of creativity.
Be inspired by the many expressions, shapes, materials, colours, sounds and foremost the joy of creation. Take part of the behind-the-scences material where the students talk about the creative process from idea to result. What inspired them and which challenges did they face? Does the end result reflect the original idea and which choices were made during the process?
Göran Sundberg, Senior Lecturer at Beckmans College of Design:
“Nobel Creations is an outstanding project that shows how research and creativity is a common factor for many creating endeavours. For students at the Fashion Programme, this will be a unique opportunity to work with students from different programmes and art schools, and to be able to put their work in a larger context. This is something that the students will carry with them in their continued studies, and in their professional careers. ”

In 2011 the Nobel Museum initiated a cooperation with Beckmans College of Design. Students of fashion were given the task of exploring what unites Nobel Laureates and designers: creativity. The result was six creations that were shown in the exhibition Fashion Innovation. The cooperation continued with Fashion Innovation 2 och Fashion Innovation 3, which also included interpretations in music created by students from the Royal College of Music.
With the exhibition Nobel Creation, the Nobel Museum expands the cooperation with Beckmans College of Design and the Royal College of Music. The result is a larger exhibition with more forms of expression and a greater scientific depth.
