Revolution Poetry presents Revolution Art. Revolution Poetry is a Stockholm based cultural/art movement and spoken word stage. Since the end of 2009 beginning of 2010 they have been creating a new platform for Spoken Word. That gives spaces for voices of POC (people of colour) which often share and draw inspiration from experiences of living in Stockholm’s suburbs. Over the past 7 years they have filled small rooms, culture houses and toured Sweden building an important movement for artists and activists who use their voice to contribute to the picture of what Swedish life is like today and what dreams we have to change this for the better. Their work is built on a fundamental belief in justice, in giving public space to individuals who don’t feel they have space in everyday society.
Over the 3 months Revolution Poetry will use their space at Marabouparken Konsthall as a studio to share their work, hold meetings with artists, and host discussions and workshops. During their residency at Marabouparken Konsthall they will develop a new strand of working called Revolution Art. Revolution Art offers a new avenue for artists and performers to develop cross disciplinary work that does not need to be fixed to a live event.There you can also spend time and find documentation from previous performances and browse a library of books related to post colonial politics.
