It's hard to believe but Auktionsverk has been auctioning items off since 1647, when baroque was actually still contemporary art. Welcome to the oldest auctioneers in the world, which has even seen a circus go under the hammer. If you are after that kind of investment be aware of your weight allowance - and know that customs don't like clowns! But maybe you would like to bid on one of the other 2,500 items that are for auction every week - a teddy like your grandma's, an antique pocket watch or the original manuscript of Pippi's story. You can also get a bargain as long as you can manage to keep your hands under control.
Magasin 3 covers every topic of modernity: photographs, videos, installations and artwork by artists that aren't known well enough to be boring, but are known well enough for their art to make a difference. Always of interest is James Turell, an American light artist and experimentalist, as well as Truls Melin, whose sculpture "mental toughness" requires just that from those who look at it. Apart from beautiful art, Magasin 3 offers regular debates with the artists, performances and a variety of different exhibitions by artists such as Tom Friedman or Sol Lewitt. If you are a fan of still life, you will be disappointed, but if you have your finger on the pulse of the artworld and think outside the box, this is the place for you.
