Fittja Open 2012



about the project

Fittja Open 2012 – Harvest!
22 September – 20 October
Various locations in Fittja

What happens when a group of artists’ collectives ask a greater audience to influence a joint art project? When discarded furniture become new design elements and maybe even a new art venue.

Fittja Open 2012 is the second act of a project putting together Botkyrka konsthall’s and Residence Botkyrka’s long-term commitment to sustainable change in urban development. The project consists of:
