2014 CREATIVE TIME SUMMIT: STOCKHOLM
SECTION 3: ACTIVATING PUBLIC SPACE
Miriam Anderson Blecher of Botkyrka Konsthall
Public art today includes projects that strive to activate the civic beyond the level of aesthetics. These artists deploy forms of engagement that enliven and contest what is possible in the commons. These practices offer an alternative to formal modes of art production and a new sense of the role of culture in the composition of the urban landscape.
