Is the art world equal? Is it ok to run a gentleman's club? What's it like being a woman and an artist in 2017?
In an exhibition at Konstnärshuset SAK UNG has invited young contemporary artists to comment on and highlight the issue of equality and openness in the art world.
More specifially, this is discussed in relation to Konstnärsklubben which has not, since its foundation in 1856, admitted female members. The same building houses Svenska Konstnärers Förening which welcomes women, men and transgender indviduals and contrasts are stark between the two associations.
Participating artists: Atorina Adams, Klara Bothén, Sara Brant Lundin, Nayab Ikram, Klara Nordin Stensö, Linda Ottoson, August Nilsson, Josefin Stefastsson och Marilen Rauch.
