Learn more about the Art Initiative.
Learn more about the Board Room Project.
The board room project was initiated to aesthetically delve into the history of the Stockholm School of Economics. The Board Room perhaps more than any other space in the school, signifies the intersection between past traditions and present value systems and was therefore the perfect place to start. The approach used was to, with deep respect for the past, put this symbolically charged space in a historical perspective. The idea was to pay tribute to the room's original aesthetic and symbolic qualities, and meanwhile to shed light on the past through the lenses of today. Thereby, the hope was that a more multi-facetted understanding of today's
society could arise.
