Why Art at SSE?
Everything we do, we do for our students. But most things we do are also open for everyone. We love a mix of people at our events.
An organization for increased knowledge intensity
Art has the capacity to provoke and inspire through artistic expression, communicating with our senses. It can enhance our potential for critical thinking and create a deeper understanding of ourselves and societal context.
Art Initiative acknowledges art as a valid knowledge base in its own right.
Collaborations with the art world and academia
Our projects include collaborations with the most relevant art institutions in Sweden such as Moderna museet, Tensta konsthall and Bonniers konsthall, academic institutions such as the Royal Institute of Art, Royal College of Music, KTH School of Architecture and Södertörn University, as well as a network of local galleries and artists.
A strong connection to research and education
Art Initiative also actively collaborates with the Center for Arts Business and Culture at Stockholm School of Economics that investigates the role of aesthetics and arts in our economy and with the student bodu Art Division.
