The group of artists known as WochenKlausur has been invited to comment
on Swedish democracy. This will take place on site during the course
of the exhibition. An extensive investigation of the current electoral

Junction is a concrete attempt at strengthening local democracy by
creating a venue for conversations. By means of a number of junctions,
invited guests have an opportunity to meet for discussion and work.
Junction is a society with its headquarters in the province of Östergötland
and the operations will be run throughout the region. The aim is to
create a new, democratic forum by building up an informal and non-hierarchical
network for people from different walks of life: artists, people working
for the municipality, business people, politicians and the general public.
The exhibition documents the activities.
