Kim Demåne: Human City
Exhibition in the Workshop 9.4–15.5 2022
The exhibition Human City, created by the artist Kim Demåne, is a unique image world where the imagination is allowed to flow freely. In the exhibition there is a recurring criticism of society, where humans breaks down and takes over the planet. But there are also elements of hope, a spark or a helping hand.
The exhibition room is a room in motion – during the exhibition, Kim will hold workshops for schools and the public, inspired by his working methods and themes in the exhibition. The groups are given the opportunity to contribute to a joint work of art that will emerge in the courtyard during the spring of 2022, which will be shown over the summer. The framework is ‘a letter to the future’ – what advice or knowledge do we have today that we want to pass on to the future? What do we want the world to look like? Whose voices should be heard?
Human City is a collaboration project with the organisation Helamalmö.
