CULTURAL CAPITAL presents works of 14 artists based in northern Swedish Umeå. The exhibition features in addition documentations of their collective interventions connected to the public sphere of Umeå and its current state as the European Capital of Culture 2014. Cautious of their perceived cultural capital, these interventions are the result of the investigations and reflections on their role in the social field, following the belief that cultural policies cannot be treated satisfactorily in isolation from the wider economic and political determinations operating upon culture and society.
After presenting their works at the Bildmuseet Umeå early May the show at ZK/U is the second part of their graduation exhibitions of the M.F.A. programme at the Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, led by Professor Florian Zeyfang.
A catalogue accompanies the exhibition, edited by Viktor Neumann, with texts by Martin Gustavsson, Nicklas Hållén, Igor Isychenko, Christina Meehan Lång, Lina Maria Lopez, Viktor Neumann, Julia Selin, Linnéa Sjöberg, Roland Spolander, Rasmus West and Florian Zeyfang. Designed by Knaggen Grafikk.
The exhibitions are supported by Umeå2014 and the Embassy of Sweden in Berlin.
