Handlingsplan för att motverka ett segregerat konstfält, Art Lab Gnesta

The action plan for counteracting a segregated art field aims to formulate a new national action plan for a fairer art field. The project wants to generate knowledge about cultural policy and explore artistic spaces for action by using art bureaucracy as a tool to make art policy. The action plan will be raised to a political level to promote political work to create social justice and counter a segregated field of art.
