Lyssna (Listen) – A creative space for everyone

15.12 2022–15.1 2023

Project Lyssna (Listen) explores new ways to give voice and space within the art world to people with developmental disabilities. In December, the Konsthall will present a digital exhibition with works that have been produced during the project. Lyssna is a regional collaboration between Malmö Konsthall, Kirseberg’s daily activity centre and Platform KCSyd.

Under eight open workshop sessions at Malmö Konsthall, participants from daily activity centres and LSS residences in Skåne have had the possibility to meet local artists and create work that responds to their artistic methodologies. Around 200 works in total have been photographed and will be shown in a digital exhibition on Malmö Konsthall’s website and in Malmö Konsthall’s Studio. In January 2023 we will also be displaying the results of the open workshop sessions on poster boards dotted around the city. We hope to make visible the stories and creative resources of this community to a wider audience through project Lyssna.

The artists who have led the open workshop sessions are Tom di Maria, Viktor Rosdahl, Sofia Zwahlen, Sigrid Holmwood, Ellinor Lager, Linnéa Carlsson, Selma Sjöstedt and Kim Demåne.
