Take a Walk on the Wild Side

A group of 13 artists and architects considers the city’s relationship to cultural production, and cultural transformation. Individual research projects focus on a variety of case or field studies, including an audio record of the Unesco World Heritage site Öland (Muriel), traces of ancient Atlantis in Uppsala (Heyman), the lost spaces in the moving city of Kiruna (Hesselgren), the changing landscape around the largest limestone mine in Sweden near Målmo (Ashton), the ubiquitous presence of the homeless (Massot), the condition of race and invisibility (Richards), tracking the evolution of the Cimenta neighbourhood in Liljeholmen (Nilsson), cruising in the shadows of the early 20th century painter Eugène Jansson (Mayes), archiving a stretch of highway crossing Stockholm (Lageryd), reviving the project ARARAT (Jansson), the seductive history of sex hotels (Boström), an atypical model of a train station designed by the architect Jerzy Sołtan in Warsaw (Jan Zydek) and the investigation into the threaded nature of white space (Jenkins).
