The Public Art Agency Sweden and the Swedish Transport Administration invite artists to participate in the second international competition for one of Gothenburg’s largest construction projects ever: the new subterranean railroad with three new stations in the area of the West Link. The second competition, Chronotopia: Haga and Korsvägen, has just been announced and focuses on the stations of Haga and Korsvägen. Chronotopia proposes an investigation of the present, a review of the value of the past, and a look into the potential of the future, with an interest in site-specific explorations. A complex network of identity, heritage and relations within a globalised world can be examined from artistic perspectives and expressed in proposals integrated in the city’s public spaces.
Applicants are requested to submit their portfolio and CV, and to fill in the entry form.
For more details and submission information, please visit the Public Art Agency Sweden’s website.
The deadline for submission is February 21st, 2017.
