The battle of the city – theories and currents of ideas on the public space of the city from a landscape perspective

Tuesday 7 February, 19:00 hrs.

Free admission. This invitation is for you and one guest.

Landscape architect Thorbjörn Andersson has followed the development of ideas concerning public space, city and landscape for many years. His role has been that of an editor, critic/writer and, not least, practitioner. This year he will publish articles in several Scandinavian magazines where he tries to capture contemporary directions in public city space, which increasingly has become the focus of politics, arts and economic development in the global society.

Afterwards a discussion will follow with magazine Arkitektur’s editor-in-chief Dan Hallemar. The moderator will be Tomas Lewan from the Art Critics Association.

A bar serving light food will be open all evening, from 18:30 to 23:00. Address: Konstnärsklubben, 2nd floor, Smålandsgatan 7, Stockholm. Ring door bell marked “Konstnärsklubben”.

The Critics’ Salon is arranged by the Swedish Art Critics Association in collaboration with the Tuesday Club – the meeting place for artists in Konstnärshuset (the Artists’ House) on the first Tuesday of every month.

The Critics’ Salon will be held in Swedish.
