BOOM! is a female separatist artist group working with glass. Their aim is to create new opportunities for a feminist platform within their field of glass. BOOM! consists of Sara Lundkvist, Nina Westman, Matilda Kästel, Ammy Olofsson and Erika Kristofersson Bredberg. Besides the collectivity in BOOM! they are all active individual artists.

In their project "Empowerment", that is all about sisterhood, power and self-esteem, BOOM! have built a mobile glass studio from scratch, all in line with their philosophy and do-it-yourself spirit. The mobile glass studio gives BOOM! the opportunity to hold workshops and showcase glass blowing in new places and for new audiences. In connection to constructing the mobile studio BOOM! have published a book, that in a playful way tells about the whole process. The book is illustrated by Emma Rendel, with graphic design made by Parasto Backman.

In the exhibition BOOM! will display some of their non-blown objects, together with a presentation of the book BOOM! (edition 2).

Saturday 5th October there will be a workshop aimed at 7-15-years, where participants will get to try blowing glass with the members of BOOM! in their self-built mobile glass blower studio.

The workshop will be free of charge, though pre-registration is needed. More info on how to register will be presented here 20 September.
