Kämpaoke by MYCKET, 2019

Konstfack is happy to welcome MYCKET collaboration and Sibylle Peters to a Common Seminar arranged by IBIS in regard to participatory methods as activities for enabling people to play an active and influential part in decisions which affect their lives.

MYCKET collaboration Stockholm & Östergötland, founded in 2012 by Mariana Alves Silva, Dr. Katarina Bonnevier and Thérèse Kristiansson. Between 2016 and 2020 MYCKET expanded to including co-worker Ullis Ohlgren, Interior Architect, and also between 2018 and 2020 Anna Märta Danielsson, Interior Architect.

The architecture, art and design practice MYCKET develops artistic research from intersectional perspectives such as anti-racist and queer-feminist theories. A practice informed by the theatrical, the carnivalesque and political activism. Together they rummage through the borderlands of the lives we live, and the environment that surrounds us. They recently inaugurated the participatory and permanent public space for dance and music Kepsen at Råslätt, Sweden (Public Art Agency Sweden, Mix Dancers Academy, Vätterhem, Jönköping municipality & Boverket, 2016-20).
