Any Given Sunday was inspired by the 2015 student led university protests across South Africa and their sense of urgency of the now. The artists – via their socially engaged artistic practice – contributed to a dynamic and interactive communal undertaking, which constantly shifted and altered predetermined schemas of art, its institutions, and its expected publics.
Public Talks is a series of seminars which will take place during 2017 and organized jointly by Valand Academy, Region Västra Götaland, Public Art Agency Sweden and a number of other art institutions in Sweden.
