New book about Bruksgården

A new publication about the extensive conversion of Bruksgården between 2010 – 2016. Photographer Jens Lindhe has followed the work during the whole period and his photographs, together with photographs by Mattias Linbäck and text by Petra Gipp and Mårten Castenfors, gives a full portrayal of the big project.

It may seem trivial, but art needs a home and a home needs its art – otherwise it will be nothing of anything.

– Mårten Castenfors

PART – reopening

PART have moved in to our office at Åsögatan. The artwork, a collaboration between composer Kim Hedås and architect Petra Gipp, will be reopened next week. The work is a part of an artistic investigation that intends to explore how dimensions of architecture/art and music/sound may be widened as more layers are added to the totality. In PART, sound and structure interact to create new sequences that together build a polyphonically shifting play.
