Seminar: Contemporary Art in Scandinavian Cultural Politics

Seminar: Contemporary Art in Scandinavian Cultural Politics

Presentations by Sirje Helme (Estonia), Power Ekroth, Anders Kreuger (Sweden), Karolin Tampere (Norway)

The seminar reveals the influence of the Scandinavian cultural politics of recent decades on the development of contemporary art and on the international reputation of the region, and it analyses both the cooperation between Scandinavian countries and the influence of intensive cooperation on neighbouring countries. The seminar supplements the exhibition “I Love Malmö,” which opens on the 5th floor of Kumu and elucidates the background of the extraordinary collections in Malmö, and the situation of contemporary art in the Nordic countries, offering a critique and analysis to those interested.
