Art walk: Meet the art in central Stockholm 

Take part in some of the public artworks in Stockholm produced by the Public Art Agency Sweden. This summer, in a series of guided tours with the title “Struggles, wills, creativity—meet art in the city,” we visit around ten public artworks. We tackle questions about how the art and places interact, how the places influence our interpretation of the artworks and how both the places and the artworks are part of different social environments and eras. The art walks are in Swedish, English and Farsi.
