Renovations at the Manne Siegbahn Laboratory begin in autumn 2018. Accelerator will open in fall 2019 as a public meeting place for art, science and societal issues. Before the opening and throughout the construction phase, Accelerator will showcase artworks.
Collaboration with interdisciplinary research groups from all four of Stockholm University’s faculties lies at the heart of Accelerator. After the earlier projects in autumn 2017, another group of scholars has been invited to reflect on the intersection of art from the perspective of their own disciplines and expertise. In spring 2018 the researchers share their thoughts about the process with the public, details forthcoming.
The exhibition “Autumn 2018” was put together by Richard Julin, artistic director, and Therese Kellner, curator at Accelerator. The artworks, “Moor” (2001) and “Touch” (2002), are both part of the collection of Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art, external partner of Accelerator.
Accelerator’s exibitions are always free to the public.
