Nobel Creations – The Nobel Prize 2016
Tom Tits Experiment, Södertälje
Can artistic interpretations explain a Nobel Prize?
Nobel Creations is about the 2016 Nobel Prize, with descriptive and interpretive elements.
With the help of fashion, music, crafts and photography, students from Beckmans College of Design, Stockholm School of Photography, Friends of Handicraft School and the Royal College of Music (KMH) have created free interpretations of this year's Nobel Prizes. The works are inspired by the discoveries and achievements made by the Laureates in Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Literature, Peace and Economics.
The exhibition explores that which unites Nobel Laureates, artists and creators: creativity. The courage to thinking outside of the box, daring to question established theories, and innovative combinations of insights from different fields are all hallmarks of creativity.
”To work with Nobel Creations is one of the highlights of the year at the Royal College of Music. It is at the same time creative, cross-disciplinary and technologically cutting-edge. We get to delve in together with other institutions in Stockholm and each we get struck with an overwhelming feeling when everything comes together and just works. ”
says Hans Lindetorp, Lecturer at the department of music production and media production at KMH.
”To be working with and interpreting something as big internationally as the Nobel Prize is both exciting and challenging. To visually interpret the six different prizes in a way that both conveys and tells about not only the individual prizes but also their meaning is a challenge that we look forward to with great anticipation”
says Mats Andrén, course director at the Stockholm School of Photography.

The exhibtion is shown at Tom Tits Experiment in Södertälje.
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.
The exhibition Nobel Creations in 2014 and 2015 expanded the cooperation with Beckmans College of Design and the Royal College of Music. The results were larger exhibitions with more forms of expression and a greater scientific depth.
