Konstepidemin

Epidemic of Art

Description 

Konstepidemin is Sweden’s biggest workplace for independent artists. Since the 1980s, they are located near Linnéplatsen in Gothenburg, where they house 130 professional practitioners of artistic disciplines, including visual artists and designers, musicians, writers, directors, filmmakers, actors, dancers etc. Konstepidemin is a central meeting place for the arts and culture of Gothenburg, and a catalyst for numerous ideas and thoughts in the fields of visual arts, literature, theater and music.

Konstepidemin has run an artist-in-residence program for more than 20 years. They have five studio apartments and accept 15-20 international artists, writers, musicians, curators and speakers annually. The productive artistic environment, and the opportunity to develop one’s artistry and projects locally, is an important reason why artists seek them out, and often return. They aim to involve the artists-in-residence in public interaction, initiating both aesthetic and political conversations, and they welcome a variety of artistic positions.
