Studio 2: FITTJA – at the intersection between architecture, planning, art and politics.
28 May – 30 August, 2014
Botkyrka konsthall in Tumba
Fittja like so many neighbourhoods from the million-program has been heavily criticized since its implementation; preconceived ideas have shaped what we assume we know regarding its social life, spatial organisation and architectural qualities.
Our aim has been to gain a deeper knowledge about the potentials of areas such as northern Botkyrka, and hopefully produce material that allows for a better understanding about the specific conditions of the built environment from the sixties and seventies.
The exhibition presents the work by a group of students from the KTH School of Architecture, which over the last year have worked on different projects in and around Fittja
During this year we have seen that the established image of Fittja obscures many other possible readings, through the work parallel observations about Fittja has emerged. A place driven by many actors and trajectories, a public space that is activated and used in new and different ways, a place where other realities become possible to imagine.
SUPERFITTJA is not primarily about documentation and presentation but as much about the production of knowledge, both about finding ways to understand our contemporary city but also to imagine what it could become.
