Tystnadskulturen / Vacant Niche

Johannes Wahlström in collaboration with Klara Källström & Thobias Fäldt and Barthélémy Garcia.

Humankind can live a whole life without further reflection on the environment that makes our life possible, provided that everything works as it should. But as soon as the routines are broken, a world of questions that have always remained unanswered opens up. Unanswered for the simple reason that they were unasked. These unanswered questions form a pattern of blind spots, and constitute our collective culture of silence. At FG2, our society’s culture of silence is illuminated by something as mundane as the empty niches of our facades. These voids, untold stories, unexplored statues, and unplaced memorials, give us an opportunity to see what we cannot talk about.

FG2 has been generously supported by Gothenburg Arts and Cultural Affairs Committee for the participation at GIBCA Extended 2021.
