DU was all about the city and common spaces. About citizens’ right to use and influence their city. About openings and boundaries. And about the role of art in public spaces

The project took place in four different locations in greater Stockholm: Slussen in central Stockholm, the districts of Rinkeby-Kista and Husby and the suburb Botkyrka south of the city. In each of the places various sub-projects was developed in dialogue with residents, associations and local authorities. Altogether over one hundred people participated in the activities which include workshops, city walks, public artwork, publications and exhibitions. Info and documentation>>

23/12/2011SCT_front_blinkning-frameSTREET CORNER TALKING (SCT) is a variable text and lighting installation at Jan Stenbecks torg, Kista.

The piece consists of a 16 x 4.5 metre long large glass wall that covers the entire corner of Kista Galleria facing out towards Jan Stenbecks torg. SCT was initiated in november 2009 and will be changed and updated with new texts and images until december 2011. SCT #05: The LED-lights behind the glass wall is programmed with a frequency that affects the human optic nerve. Best experience of the work can be obtained standing at the tip of the triangle that is marked out in the paving on the ground floor and with the eyes closed for at least three minutes. Some visitors’ reactions: – I see circles in red and green… – Rotating color patterns that grow outward… – I see a spiral galaxy in my left eye… – Pulsating spots in red…

The first item of Appendix was lauched in october 2009. Appendix is available free of charge and can be downloaded at Firework Edition. There you also find information on where to find printed items of Appendix

Appendix is necessary; fantastic; fearless; sovereign; intelligent; non-commercial; commercial; dreamlike; political; headless – and therefore absolutely free of charge. Appendix is a crying voice in the desert, anonymous and unknown, innocent and lost, confused and gone with a  wind, like dust, like small bushes, like an open car alone in the rain, like smoke, like a burning house, like a burning head, like you, like me, like everything that calculate similarity, loyalty, that calculate fear and what comes with that; people and beasts and all that crawls and run around in the night…

 

28/10/2010 invigning2-1024x682Inauguration of STREET CORNER TALKING, november 23, 2009 in Kista

Street Corner Talking (SCT), is a 16 x 4.5 meter large light- and text-based public artwork. The glass wall is situated in the newly built Kista Galleria, in the corner facing Jan Stenbecks square. Visually SCT is based on the interplay between text and light. The glass wall facing the square is covered with a replaceable film with cut out text. In the space between the glass surface and the inner wall is an installation of 300 LED lights creating a shifting play of lights where the text appears shining in different colors. The texts and the film are continually updated in dialog with the context, thereby creating a constantly current and ongoing work

Corporate Mentality documents the emergence of recent practices within a cultural sphere occupied by both business and art. Based on an archive (1995-2001) maintained by Aleksandra Mir, it presents a diverse spectrum of artists who take on business as site, as material, and as subject of their work. Calling for a reassessment of the function of art in late-capitalist society, Corporate Mentality focuses on the complex and ambiguous ways artistic production inhabits corporate processes, abandoning the autonomy of the artwork, in order to elaborate resistant approaches to a world increasingly determined by commercial strategies and market concerns.

Receives the Swedish Association of Architects SA-PRIZE  for initiating and curating the project KULTURKONTORET I VÅRBY GÅRD

SA-priset till konstnär: Konstnären Thomas Liljenberg har fått Stockholms Arkitektförenings pris för sitt arbete med Vårby Gård. Där har åtta konstnärer etablerat ”Kulturkontor” där de arbetar med socialt och demokratiskt relaterade platsspecifika projekt. Thomas Liljenberg har varit drivande i arbetet som sker i samarbete med lokala föreningar, politiker och skolan.

Juryns motivering: SA-priset 2005 går till konstnären Thomas Liljenberg, som med djärva angreppssätt vågat inverka och påverka utvecklingen av Vårby Gård. Genom att etablera ett ”Kulturkontor” i Stockholmsförorten Vårby Gård har åtta konstnärer kunnat arbeta kreativt med socialt och demokratiskt relaterade och platsspecifika projekt. I kontakt med lokala föreningar, politiker och skola har Thomas Liljenberg gjort en djupdykning i Vårby Gårds sociala strukturer. Ett arbete som legat till grund för beslut kring Vårby Gårds fortsatta utveckling. Som en starkt initiativtagande, influerande och påverkande person med ett brinnande intresse för att förändra och förbättra de miljöer som andra är rädda för att ta i, statuerar Thomas Liljenberg exempel. Vi vill med detta pris visa uppskattning för Thomas arbete med att med konsten som medel kunna främja lokala, kreativa och demokratiska processer i förorten. (Jury: Anders Bergkrantz, Johan Celsing, Mats Fahlander, Birgitta Kari, Stina Larsson, Helena Mattson, Cecilia Sagrén)

DSC06349MEDBORGARCENTRUM (Citizen Center). A full-scale architectural proposal for a rebuilding/new center in Vårby gård, Huddinge county. In collaboration with Anders Krüger (artist) and Erik Stenberg (architect)

Medborgarcentrum is a architectural, social and political re-formulation of the present center of Vårby gård: a proposal for a new public building, a Citizen Center in conjunction with Vårbyskolan, the existing Junior High School, centrally located in Vårby gård. The project started in 2002 and gradually developed in close dialogue with different people in Vårbygård and Huddinge County: inhabitants of Vårby gård, local polititians, the headmaster of Vårbyskolan Stefan Frohm, city planner Galip Bozkurt and many others

The project is a challenging offer to the County polititians, and has initiated a vital and necessary discussion about the future of Vårby gård. The various stages of Medborgarcentrum was presented on several occasions and invited the public to participate in the process of planning for the future of their community. In the beginning of 2004, Medborgarcentrum was presented along with an architectural scale model at ”Demokratiforum”, a political forum organized by County polititians and citizens of Vårby gård. Liljenberg and Krüger have included in their project team; architect Erik Stenberg, city planner / Imam Galip Bozkurt, and model builder Lars Svensson
