The third in a series of hearings concerning the consequences of “broadened financing” for art institutions.

And how does art and the artist participate in the gentrification of the city? Participants: Berit Svedberg, Stockholm city, Elisabeth Lilja, sociologist, Stockholm University and Lars Mikael Raattamaa, architect and poet. Moderated by David Karlsson, historian and cultural journalist. Arranged by Botkyrka Konsthall, Konsthall C, Marabouparken, Mossutställningar and Tensta konsthall. In Swedish.
