Collaboration with artists

In Art is Happening, the Public Art Agency Sweden collaborates with a great many artists. During the in-depth research phase in the spring, summer and autumn of 2016 we worked with artists such as the Sunshine Socialist Cinema (Kalle Brolin and Kristina Müntzing), Pezo von Ellrichausen, Anna Viola Hallberg, Madeleine Hatz and Myriam Lefkowitz. 28 locations advanced to the first stage in the process.

In October 2016, when 15 locations were ready for continued collaboration, more artists were involved. In May 2017 we collaborated with the following artists in each respective location: Nasim Aghili, Björn Karlsson (Hässelby), Anna Högberg, Johan Tirén (Gamlegården), Carla Zaccagnini (Lindängen), MAP 13 Barcelona (Hageby), Michael Beutler (Råby), Maider Lopez (Hammarkullen), Johanna Gustavsson Fürst (Kungsmarken), Johanna Billing, MYCKET (Råslätt), MUF (Jordbro), Sandi Hilal (Boden), Roxy Farhat (Holma), Lina Sofia Lundin (Tjärna Ängar), Santiago Mostyn (Gärdeåsen) and Alexandra Stratimirovic (Tynnered)

Collaboration with authorities

The Public Art Agency Sweden and the Swedish Arts Council are co-responsible for the government initiative Taking Place.

The open call was prepared in collaboration with, among others, ArkDes, the Architecture and Design Centre, Stockholm; the National Board of Housing; Building and Planning; the Swedish National Heritage Board; the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society; Sweden’s Municipalities and County Councils (SKL), and SABO. The application deadline was 1 March 2016.

Follow-up research is being conducted in collaboration with ArkDes, Architecture and Design Centre in Stockholm.

15 Locations Proceed To Next Phase

On 4 October 2016, a decision was reached on where the Public Art Agency Sweden will continue its collaboration with representatives from local communities and local actors in the government initiative Art is Happening.
