The Public Opinion: participants

img Content | Exhibition | Calendar | Participants | Links


The Austrian group of artists known as WochenKlausur has been working with social interventions since 1993. They work with different types of social changes in which art functions as a platform. Projects are often started on the initiative of art institutions that invite the group to participate. The group then studies the actual site and comes with a proposal for a larger or smaller change of the social and political situation as well as a plan for carrying it out.
In Stockholm the designer Liv Fjellander and the artist Erik Rosshagen participate in WochenKlausur’s activities.
