History is a realistic genre. However, one can ask what kind of realism is at play, and what kind of truth is historical.

Margareta Bergman’s Vilse i Sameland (Lost in Sápmi) is a photo book containing images produced during an artist residency at Varanger Samiske Museum in Varangerbotn, Troms and Finnmark county, Northern Norway, in 2008. The book is part of a project inviting a reconsideration of history-making and cultural heritage, specifically via the institutions that exhibit visual and material culture.
