Soli deo gloria
The installation Soli Deo Gloria was unveiled in the SSE Library on 4 May. The artists Lina Selander and Oscar Mangione gave a talk one week later about the work and the process of making it.
Soli Deo Gloria (Glory to God alone), is an epic visual journey through the hidden and oftentimes spiritually ambiguous facets of monetary history and its connection to social change.
