Due to all the news articles that have followed the one published in DN on 2021-02-01 with the headline "No, the Vita Havet exhibition at Konstfack has nothing to do with racism," we have put together a compilation below. It consists partly of some texts in which our Vice-Chancellor Maria Lantz comments on the events and partly of links to some of the articles, as well as TV and radio reportage. There is also a summary of the results of the work environment investigation that has been carried out, with a brief commentary from the Vice-Chancellor.
