Screening of documentary

HUR

 

26 April – 19 May 2018

Directed by Roxy Farhat.

In collaboration with HUR-Samhällsentreprenören.

DOP Iga Mikler.

 

This artwork and documentary is about the youth group HUR, operating in the multi-storey housing blocks in the neighbourhood of Holma in Malmö, Sweden. Artist Roxy Farhat has worked closely with the young people and their families to create individual portraits of their personal stories and lives.

 

HUR is run by young people aged 16 to 25, and focuses on youth development and health in a neighbourhood that is often categorised by the media as ‘dangerous’.

In this film, these young people define their world, challenge stereotypes and work towards bringing a sustainable social change.

 

This film is a result of Konst Händer (Art is Happening), a programme run by Public Art Agency Sweden, with the goal of fostering artistic expression in close collaboration with civil society organisations.

 

 

Interview (in Swedish) with Roxy Farhat about creating the documentary HUR.

3rd of May – Moderated talk.

Anusha Caroline Andersson will lead a discussion with Roxy Farhat and representatives from HUR.

Book Club

Ädellaboratoriet

 

January 2018

During two evenings a curated group of nine persons will have conversations about group belonging and human behaviour, with the starting point in Sara Engbergs book “Ädellaboratoriet”.

 

The discussions, led by Valle Wigers, are going to be captured in a text, which will further be used in the public program later on during the year.

 

TWO THOUSAND AND SEVENTEEN

Göran Söderström & Kajsa Lindberg

Bokstäver

 

10 – 29 October 2017

Göran and Kajsa are two creatives from different disciplines. They often have the same reference points and sources of inspiration, though working in different media and with two completely different results.

 

The fascination for letters and graphic signs is the connection between Göran Söderström, who draws digital fonts, and jewelry artist Kajsa Lindberg.

 

A conversation between Göran and Kajsa was be held during the exhibition, moderated by Samira Bouabana.

This exhibition was produced with financial support from Stockholms stad and Kulturrådet.

Moa Lönn

Pending Perceptions

 

4 – 23 of April 2017

In this spring’s premiere exhibition at Barklund & Co, Moa Lönn raises questions about global change, life’s fragility and human responsibility.

 

Her art combines ceramics with claymation and invites the observer to a story beyond the fired works.

 

Through the time-based motion storytelling and the three-dimensional sculptures, a new dimension is revealed within the ceramic field. The exhibition draws from the human every-day life and the relentless natural processes that surrounds and fulfil us all.

 

Moa Lönn graduated at Konstfack in 2009, from the department of Ceramic and Glass, and she is currently based in Uppsala.

 

The exhibition was produced with financial support from Stockholms stad.
