Deepened Empathy through artistic expression

4 May 2023

Welcome to 199 different voices at Konstfack Degree Exhibition(s): Bachelor's students 6–12 May, Master's and teacher education students 20–26 May.

Art, design and crafts affect and touch us all. Even through visual communication, interior architecture and visual arts and sloyd education we can feel and experience, understand, enjoy or be provoked. Sometimes beauty is expressed, other times sharp social criticism, with moments of humour or irony that make us laugh. But most of all, artistic expression is about deepened empathy, both as a starting point and as a sort of goal: Who does what for whom, why, and with what results? Do you see what I see, do you feel what I feel? Or do you see something else? We ask these questions time and time again in our encounters with each other – and with others. In both of this year's Degree Exhibitions, we offer a wild bouquet of genres to enjoy, a mixture that celebrates diversity, encounters and cross-fertilisations.
