About the graphic designers and curators

Konstfack's Degree Exhibition 2020 will present 200 graduating students' projects. The graphic concept is created by Agga Anne Mette Stage and Hanna Stenman. The exhibition is curated by Emily Fahlén and Asrin Haidari.

The Konstfack alumni competition for the Degree Exhibition graphic identity has been awarded to Agga Anne Mette Stage and Hanna Stenman, who have both received a master's degree in Visual Communication. Their concept came into being through a discussion about the school as a place for existing during a certain time in a certain setting and how those limits shape what is being created and learned. The visual language is a conversation with textbooks and an abstract exploration of craft, time and learning.

Agga Anne Mette Stage is currently working as a freelance graphic designer and art director with a variety of commercial clients. Her master's degree project Body Soap Name Generator was awarded Vasakronan's grant in 2017 and was later awarded the prize for Young Swedish Design 2018.

Hanna Stenman works with drawing, animation and text; she is an illustrator, editor and tutor. Her master's degree project Let Me Try to Explain was a part of the exhibition Norm Form at Arkdes in 2017 and has since been in several exhibitions and screenings around Europe.

This year's curators are, as in 2019, Emily Fahlén and Asrin Haidari who manage Mint konsthall at ABF Stockholm. They work with a special interest for radical art production, intergenerational meetings and site-specific interventions. Last year, they identified where at Konstfack critical discourses took place, in which rooms and from which planes of consciousness they happened in order to find answers to the question of what histories are hidden in the school's architecture, system and inhabitants.

Fahlén and Haidari were curators of the retrospective Gunilla Palmstierna-Weiss: Tecknade scener 1964–1984 at Moderna Museet in Stockholm as well as artistic directors for the Luleå Biennial 2018. Previously they both worked at Tensta konsthall, a center for contemporary art in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta, with local and international art projects.
