Wooloo Lectures and Conversations

Contributing to valeveil‘s Bow and Arrow project, the Danish artist group Wooloo (Sixten Kai Nielsen and Martin Rosengaard) will curate a series of conversations examining local participation, communication concerns and the flow of energy between Tensta and Stockholm in late April. Wooloo will introduce the mission and evolution of their artistic and curatorial practice, as well as share their upcoming sculptural plans and initiative Avfyrningsrampe / Launching Ramp which will be inaugurated in June in Tensta.
