SMITTANDE ORO OCH MOD
An art project about freedom of expression
During GIBCA Extended, this project will participate via five municipalities with four works that were previously shown separately. This is the first and last time they are shown together.
From 1 February to 17 May, the 12 municipalities participating in the project Smittande oro och mod (Contageous fear and courage) have simultaneously and periodically shown a new, unique work of art in 12 copies, highlighting fear and courage in the context of democracy and freedom of expression. The participating artists are: Nina Bondeson (SE), Kendell Geers (ZA), Carl Michael von Hausswolff (SE) and Esther Shalev-Gerz (FR). Curator: Jörgen Svensson.
