Clashes, Desires, Creativity – a Walk & Talk on Public Art in the City

Experience art and discuss philosophical issues revolving around history, the present, democracy and a sense of direction – where we come from and where we are going, in our art walk Clashes, Desires, Creativity – a Walk and Talk on Public Art in the City. The guided tours take about 2 hours and are held in English on August 22nd and 29th.

During the walk, we will meet public art and discuss what role the artworks play in understanding the city, how the places are defined by the artworks and how art can shape social environments and eras.

We walk and talk about ideas that have shaped the works – clashes, desires, creativity, and a sense of responsibility for that which we all share. The art walks in the city center are part of the Public Art Agency’s public programme.

The guides are Kristoffer Svenberg, artist and educator, and Rebecca Beyene, who work on behalf of Public Art Agency Sweden.
