The initiative is a follow-up to the exhibition Stuff it, which took place in 1998 at the artist-run gallery Ynglingagatan 1, where Geschwind was one of the driving forces. The non-commercial gallery grew out of a prevailing frustration with the stagnation of the established art scene. Accordingly, Stuff it was produced with the desire to challenge the framework of exhibition production and format. During a specific day, artists were invited to install their works, thus making the exhibition half a social event focusing on the meeting between artists. With Stuff it at Bonniers Konsthall, we have hoped to recreate that spirit and become a place for artists to meet, install art, talk and socialise.
Consequently, the resulting exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall is a cacophony of artistry. Perhaps a blissful mess, but one that stands for something bigger and more urgent.
