Journal: Our Art Spectators

A seminar on the changing audience conditions and its consequences. 19-20 May, 2009.

In this seminar, organized by KOP- Network for art and audience questions we got to share scenario with important people form the art environment such as Lars Nittve from Moderna Muséet, Peter Gorschlüter from Tate Liverpool and Jacob Fabricius from Konsthallen in Malmo. We were invited to talk about the model we work with at Stapelbädden. Some of the important points of our presentation were:

* We don’t believe there are “creative and not creative people” we think everyone can be creative if they get the right opportunity to show it.

*New exchange economy.

* Stapelbädden is not for everyone, but everyone is welcome!

Book: Malmö Nästa (Malmö Next)

MALMO NEXT, 12 conversations with people that do something

Writer and filmmaker Carl-Henrik Svenstedt contacted us and asked if we were interested to be a part of his book about the cultural development in the city of Malmo. He heard of our project De Dödas Festival (The festival of the dead) and though the way we worked and the theme of the subject were quite interesting.  We were off course interested!! Some of the other projects that were also in the book were people like: Suzanne Naffah from Din Gata, Politician Luciano Astudillo, Daniel Strausser who brought yoga to Malmo and Björn Stenbäck who started the first ecologic restaurant in this city, just to mention a few.
