Studio 44 is a dynamic, contemporary artist-run organisation characterised by it´s diversity and openness to different forms of artistic expression. Currently consisting of some 30 visual artists who together manage the gallery space (256 + 26 sqm), showing their own work as well as inviting other artists to participate in themed exhibitions and seminars. studio44 cooperate with international artist-run galleries and have exhibited in Beijing, Berlin, Manchester and New York among other places. The work process is organic and democratic, allowing different approaches to exist side by side.
Our booth 2018 showcases new artworks by Studio 44 members. We explore the legacies of censorship, sex, and religion; observations on increasingly conservative contemporary attitudes - reactions to preconceived failures of democratic trust: in the political, social, and moral institutions. Participants: Geraldine Hudson, Helena Norell, Mariana Ekner, Oskar Johnström and Kjell Hansson.
