Untitled (Mirror) by Barbra Kruger is part of the SSE permanent collection and hangs on the entrance floor of Sveavägen 65, close to the stone chair. It was released on the occasion of the exhibition Barbara Kruger: Thinking of   You. I Mean Me. I Mean You. at Serpentine in London during February and March 2024. In Untitled (Mirror), 2024, the sentence typed in red sans serif font is a play on the exhibition’s title and offers a further variation of it.

The American world-famous artist Barbara Kruger was born in 1945 in Newark, New Jersey, USA. She is known for her work with imagery and words, frequently borrowing from the languages of advertising, graphic design, and magazines. Her practice explores complex mechanisms of power, gender, class, and capital.
In her work, Kruger uses direct address, a form of communication popular in advertising, to speak to viewers about contemporary modes of consumption.
Her work has been shown in galleries and museums, as well as installed and projected onto buildings, billboards, hoardings, cars, buses, and skate parks, and printed in newspapers. The artist has also designed t-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, mugs and other object of everyday use.
