Ylva Hillström

Ylva Hillström works as a curator with the Learning department at Moderna Museet in Stockholm. She holds an MA in Art History and has a special interest in esoteric currents in early 20th century art. She also has a strong engagement in environmental issues. In 2016, she initiated Moderna Museet’s online platform Acclimatize, where people could upload creative responses to the climate crisis and draw inspiration from interviews with renowned artists. Furthermore, she has initiated several other programs and activities relating to sustainability and climate change. Most recently, Moderna Museet organised a digital symposium on the roles of museums in the transition towards a sustainable future together with SLU (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences). The symposium was part of the Mistra Environmental Communication program. Ylva has written several books on art and creativity and is dreaming of publishing her first crime fiction novel shortly.
