Junior Residence 2023



about the project

6 juli – 7 oktober 2023
Botkyrka konsthall

The exhibition AURA is a growing interactive work of art that starts from the question: what makes you feel good?

Children and youths have been engaging with the question during the spring and summer of 2023. In June, Junior Residence created an exhibition framework based on the research and invited the audience to fill the space with their artistic contributions.

AURA is inspired by Article 31 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which emphasizes children’s right to rest, play and leisure and to take part in arts and culture.
